    A recipe that was brought to a family reunion which was a crowd pleader. So very simple to make. Shortbread with a wonderful twist.

      I made these last week as part of my head start on Christmas baking. I really wanted to love these - the flavor is outstanding - but for some reason there seems to be too much butter in it and they turned out extremely greasy for me. I put them in the freezer, hoping they would set up better; that helped, but you can totally see the (now) solidified butter all at the bottom of the bars. I tried dipping the bottoms in chocolate to cover that up, but it just didn't seem right texture-wise. I'm not sure what went wrong because I followed the measurements and directions exactly as stated and baked appropriately. Taste-wise, they're very rich and I love the concept of the coffee and toffee added in. I may try what lilquiz did and add those items into a different shortbread recipe sometime and see if I end up with better results. Thank you for posting the idea!

      I love caramel macchiato coffee, so I had to try these bars. They are quite delicious and will be an added bonus to my Christmas platter this year. Thanks for posting this extremely simple recipe Dotty.
