The Ultimate Caramel Shortbread from James Morton's How Baking Works cookbook. It’s not often that I am arrogant enough to believe that my recipe should be the standard on which all others are based.

Iced Party Rings from James Morton's How Baking Works. These biscuits are my favourite and a good opportunity to show off a basic hybrid biscuit dough.

Crumb Topping Using your hands, mix equal parts brown sugar and flour with half as much unsalted butter (e.g. 1/2 C brown sugar, 1/2 C flour, 1/4 C butter). It should stick together and form crumbs. Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes. Crumble any pieces that stuck together and put the crumbs on everything in sight!
