Millionaire Scottish Shortbread

My original Scottish Shortbread recipe is my favorite, but when I'm really looking to impress my guests I reach for my exquisite Millionaire Shortbread Recipe.

Millionaire Shortbread is the perfect combination of melt in your mouth shortbread, homemade caramel, and your favorite chocolate to top things off.



  • 1 Package of my Scottish Shortbread Ingredients
  • 1 Stick of premium salted butter
  • 1/2 cup (heaping - 4 oz total) Granulated Sugar
  • 1 1/3 Cup of Sweetened Condensed Milk (1 tin)
  • 4 TSP of Golden Syrup (May substitute Maple Syrup or Corn Syrup)
  • 8 oz of the best chocolate you can afford (this is Millionaire Shortbread!)

  • After you blend your Scottish Shortbread ingredients and 1 stick of softened butter to a bread crumb consistency in your food processor, line a small baking tray (11 x 7) with parchment paper and press shortbread crumbs firmly into tray using the back of a spoon to form a compacted rectangle almost to the edges of the tray.
