  • Yield: Makes 6 square

Source: Martha Stewart Living, February 2007


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened, plus more for pan
  • 3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 cup chocolate-covered toffee bars, finely chopped, plus 1/3 cup coarsely crushed for garnish
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees, with rack in upper third. Sift flour and salt into a bowl; set aside. Put butter into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium-high speed until fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl. Gradually add sugar; beat until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

  2. Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture all at once; mix until just combined.

  3. Using plastic wrap, press dough into a buttered 8-inch square pan. With plastic on dough, refrigerate 45 minutes.

  4. Prick all over with a wooden skewer. Bake until golden brown and center is firm, 70 to 75 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool 10 minutes.

  5. Put finely chopped chocolate-covered toffee bars and heavy cream into a saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium-low heat until smooth. Pour over shortbread in pan; sprinkle with about coarsely crushed chocolate-covered toffee bar. Let cool completely. Cut into 2-inch squares.
