Salted Caramel Shortbread with Schwartz

My girls all love baking, ever since they were big enough to sit on the kitchen worktop, they’ve been helping me to bake cakes. Now they are at the point they can go off and make things all by themselves. Nothing beats having kiddos who are big enough to bake you a cake! Schwartz got in touch last week and asked if one of my girls would be interested in creating a recipe with some of their herbs or spices and videoing it to share here. Kiki was very excited at the idea, and spent an hour trawling through ideas for waht she might like to bake.

She opted to make a variation on Millionaires Shortbread – with salted caramel and a vanilla & cinnamon shortbread base {she shares my love of salted caramel!!} She worked out what we needed, made a shopping list and baked it {pretty much} all by herself. I can confirm it tastes just as amazing as it looks, though in our house a batch only lasted a day! {double batch next time I think!!}

    This is so sweet! It’s great that she enjoys it as it’s such a valuable skill to have as they grow up. Be;;e is 13 now and she really loves baking. It’s brilliant at that age though because she doesn’t need supervision, I can just sit back, let her get on with it, and enjoy the fruits of her labour!
