Hey Friday, you are looking ever so sweet to me this week. I just want to enrobe myself in the comforting blanket of the weekend and not poke my head out until Sunday night.
I’m pretty sure the lure of the empty kitchen is the only thing to pull me from my couch fort. That, and the groaning belly of my husband.
And possibly my own desire for new flavors and textures…and a sincere craving for caramel.
I’m pretty sure I’m always craving caramel, and would never turn it down, ever. I might even go so far as to say it surmounts my cravings for chocolate.
So naturally, the thought of making caramel, pouring it hot and steaming over roasted nuts, and in turn pouring that delicious concoction over a shortbread crust just seemed an inevitability.
The caramel stays soft and supple, the nuts crunchy and the shortbread flaky and buttery. I practically inhaled these. I think you can see why.
