This is my another goodie for kids. Kids can enjoy this anytime and could be a wonderful treat for Children’s day or Christmas. The three layers of shortcrust, toffee and chocolate nuts give you a unique texture and taste as you bite through them one after the other.
Pistachios and almonds………………………..2 tbsp (slivered)
For shortbread layer:
Mix the butter, sugar, all-purpose flour, lemon juice, lemon zest and salt with the fingers until mixture resembles bread crumbs.
Then transfer mixture on work surface and knead very gently to bring them together to form a ball (Don’t knead it too much with your palm)
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 30 mins
Preheat the oven at 170 degrees
Grease the 9*9 inch square pan
Place the dough in the center of the pan, press the dough with your hand to form a shape and size of pan. Press the top to make uniform layer
Bake it for 25 minutes or till done
In a pan, melt butter, toffees and stir. Simmer till toffee melts, add condensed milk and stir until combines well. Stir occasionally to avoid burning
Pour the melted toffee mixture over the shortbread and chill in refrigerator till set
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Once chocolate has melted, take it off the boiler
Add lemon zest and mix. Cool it slightly(should be warm and pouring consistency) pour over the chilled toffee layer. Also sprinkle chopped nuts over chocolate before it gets cooled and set. Chill it in refrigerator for sometime
