Cousins' Week Pie (Toffee Shortbread)

Recipe by Sweetiebarbara

When my nephews and niece were young, they came to visit during the Summer. Some Summers there were only 2 of them, but once all 7 were here. I loved cooking for them. They especially liked "Cousin's Week Pie" This is the richest desert I know, a pie serves 16! You might even want to ask your physician if he would approve a slice for you, or perhaps, a half slice.

Very good but also very rich.
