I might try killers shortbread when The glitt clan have finished the millionaires shortbread. (I don't use contensed milk by the way)

What size tin do you bake the shortbread in?

I'm far too lasy for that Babyhunk, I use a jar of Dulce de Leche. Just warm it up a bitin the micro, give it a stir and poor it over. Couldn't be easier.

Soooooo reluctant to put this but I've actually made it twice ON MY OWN!*

The first time I thought, oooh that's a lot of butter to mix in, I'll melt it a bit in the nuke box first, THEN I saw that you had to crumble it into the flour I actually poured it into the tin and everytime I checked oven it was completely liquid. However...even though it was incredibly crumbley and broke into a thousand pieces before it reached your mouth and even though you could feel the enamel melting as you ate it, it was...delish.

* This is a lie, I had help the second time
