Pecan Toffee Shortbread

"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.
