Shortbread topped with pecan studded toffee. Mmm… delicious! You can omit the cornflour and swap it for more plain flour if you wish, but the cornflour gives the shortbread a lighter texture.

Made this for the DS to take to his adult music recreation group where they very much enjoyed it. I baked at 170C fan forced oven and the base was a lovely golden colour after 18 minutes. I used a mix of pecans (4oz) and macadamias (2oz). Thank you Noo, made for Please Review My Recipe.
