    Noo's Note:

    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.

      I made these last night, and ooooh! They are so good. I love toffee, and usually its on top of chocolate, so this was a pleasant surprise for me. I let DS eat 2 pieces, I ate one, and took the rest to work the next morning. By 10 am, there were none left....everyone was asking me if I had more at home that I could bring in the next day! Thanks you so much for sharing a delicious recipe!

      Oh my gosh, these are so decadent! And easy! Like WC, I took them with me and didn't have a single one left to take a picture of! So, I will be forced to make them again. How tragic! ;o) I used whole pecans, and wow, did that ever up the visual appeal to irresistable! The shortbread was delicious, too. Thank you, Noo - this is SO GOOD! Made for PRMR Tag.
