Coconut Pecan Shortbread Cookies with Caramel Filling
Double down on rich shortbread cookies by filling them with gooey caramel.
Chill the dough well before rolling it out and loosen it from the work surface with a spatula several times during rolling. Before baking, choose the best-shaped cookies to be the tops, and cut holes in their centers with an aspic cutter or the large end of a pastry tip. When the cookies are assembled, a bead of caramel will show through the center.
