    Bibliobethica's Note:

    My mother has been making these since I was a child. I had no idea how easy they were until I asked her for the recipe. She got the recipe back in the 1960's from her friend Harriet. Few ingredients and delicious!

    1. 1
      Cream the butter and brown sugar.
    2. 2
      Mix in the egg yolk and vanilla.
    3. 3
      Add the flour and salt.
    4. 4
      spread in an 9 X 13 baking dish. I like to put parchment in the bottom of the pan.
    5. 5
      Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes.
    6. 6
      Immediately after taking it out of the oven, put the chocolate bar on top to melt.
    7. 7
      Spread the chocolate all over the bar (you can add tidbits on top of the chocolate - toasted pecans and Heath Bar bits are both good).
    8. 8
      Cut diagonally.

      My husband loves shortbread and this recipe works very nicely, a moister pre-baked mixture than I'm used to but gave a good biscuity texture. It was easy to chop up a chocolate bar, sprinkle it onto the baked biscuit and smooth gently a moment or so later. A very nice baked treat, that didnt take me long to whip up, thank you Bibliobethica, made and enjoyed for Spring PAC 2014
