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. But here I am saying just that. It’s not only the best caramel shortcake I’ve ever had, but I’ve gone to great pains to keep the steps and ingredients very simple, too.
The recipe is from Rebecca Seal's new cookbook on Istanbul cuisine. She calls it Turkish potatoes, but I'm almost certain it's a Kurdish recipe. Either way, it's simple and really tasty. Just don't add the onions zu early or they will burn.
Bear Bread.... adorable! The recipe is translated from japanese, so it's all metric and stuff... but I bet these would be fantastic with just some standard sweet bread and a cup of tea with honey. Mmmmm...
