Salted Caramel Shortbread Cookies
I thought these cookies were a nightmare to make. First, the dough was so soft when I was rolling them out (even after I refrigerated it) that it was hard to keep them round when transferring to the cookie sheet. So I started making balls and flattening them on the cookie sheet with the back of my spatula. That worked well and made smaller cookies. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for a minute or two, or they will crack when transferring them to the rack. Then, the caramel was so hard to spread on top of the cookies. Like others said, it cooled so quickly. The melting time for the chocolate is all wrong-check every 10 seconds to make sure it doesn't seize, and I also added more butter. I put my chocolate in a sandwich bag and cut the corner to drizzle. All that said, I probably will not be making these again. They weren't worth the frustration!
