Mothering Sunday perhaps you can make your Mum or your Gran some Toffee Flower Biscuits. These tasty little shortbreads will go down a treat. Toffee Flower Biscuits are based on my very tasty Millionaires Shortbread recipe a little bit smaller and not quite so much chocolate.

For the shortbread biscuits you will need

  • 4oz / 120g Butter
  • 2oz / 55g Castor Sugar
  • 5oz / 150g Plain Flour

Makes approx 32 small flowers but it will depend on the size of your cutter

  1. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy
  2. Add the flour mix well
  3. Wrap in cling film and chill for 10 – 15 minutes
  4. Remove cling film and roll out on a floured surface until your shortbread is approx 2- 3mm
  5. Cut out small hearts and lay them on a baking sheet
  6. Bake at 160 deg centigrade/ 320 deg F / Gas Mark 3 for approx 10minutes until golden brown – remember when the shortbread hearts come out the oven, they will not be firm, they will firm up as they cool.

For the Caramel Filling you will need

  • 2oz / 55g Butter
  • 1oz / 28g Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tin (approx 200g) Condensed Milk
  1. Into a pan place your condensed milk, butter and sugar, gently heat, stirring constantly
  2. As you stir you will find that the caramel begins to thicken. Allow to become thick take off the heat and pour into a bowl, allow to cool

To make and finish your Toffee Flower Biscuits, you will need

  • 25g ( about 5 squares ) Dark Chocolate
  • 25g ( about 5 squares) White Chocolate
  1. Spread 1/2 of your valentine shortbreads with the caramel sauce and then place the others on top
  2. Melt your chocolate and drizzle over the Toffee Flower Shortbreads
 

Whoever you make them for I am sure they will enjoy them, my children adored them, as little bit of love from Mummy  in the lunch box!
