We’ve taken this traditional dessert to a whole new level! Bite-sized squares with melt-in-your-mouth shortbread and sweet caramel. The magic in minutes ingredient is Eagle Brand® Dulce de Leche Caramel Flavoured Sauce, mixed with toasted pecans.

Ingredients

Shortbread

2 cups 500 mL butter, softened
1 cup 250 mL sugar
3 ¼ cups 800 mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
½ cup 125 mL corn starch

Topping

2 cups 500 mL whole pecans
1 can 300 mL Eagle Brand® Dulce de Leche Caramel Flavoured Sauce

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Place pecans on baking sheet and bake in preheated oven, 8-10 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Grease a 9” x 13” (23 cm x 33 cm) baking dish and line with parchment paper, overlapping two sides for easy removal.
  3. Shortbread: Beat butter in a large bowl of an electric mixer on medium-high speed until very light in texture, about 5 minutes. Add sugar and continue beating until sugar is completely combined, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Combine flour and corn starch in a separate medium bowl. Add to butter mixture on low speed until well combined.
  5. Press dough evenly on bottom and up the sides of prepared baking dish. Bake in preheated oven, 45-50 minutes.
  6. Topping: Combine toasted pecans and caramel flavoured sauce in a medium bowl. Spread over hot crust. Return to oven and continue baking for an additional 12-15 minutes. Cool on wire cooling rack in baking dish. Once cooled, lift from baking dish and cut into squares.
