      This recipe is great. I love these little squares with tea.

      A note to the prior reviewer who said that cornflour is masa. This is incorrect. Cornflower in British English is actually cornstarch. You need cornstarch for this recipe.

      WOW! This is incredible! The only chocolate in the house was a bag of Dove dark miniature hearts. I think I'll use Hershey's milk chocolate next time. But this is a terrific recipie! I can see why they're in all the tea shops. They weren't invented yet when I was there because I didn't see them then, but OOOH! I think I need another..... Next time I'll bake it a little less, maybe 20 minutes and 15. The shortbread is very crunchy and I think I prefer a little tenderer cookie. The edges of the carmel layer are chewey and crunchy--delicious! We'll see how they age and mellow--if they last till tomorrow. The cook keeps going back for samples! (LOL) This is a great one! Sorry, (not really) this is not diet fare. Great with hot tea or ice cold milk!

      It's millionaire's shortbread!! I made this for a cake sale in school and it was sold out within 2 minutes. Very rich and fairly expensive but totally worth it.
