I found this in England once, and damn near died and went to heaven. I havent made it ever, but just found this recipe, and it will now be a staple on my christmas cookie list forever. My sis is goanna freak when I make this!!!

Millionaires Shortbread

3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1-3/4 cups flour

Caramel Filling:
14 oz. can condensed milk
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup butter
3 Tbsp. golden syrup or corn syrup

8 oz. plain chocolate
1/2 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 12 x 8 " pan. Beat butter and sugar until
light and fluffy. Add flour and mix to form a soft dough. Knead lightly
then press into pan, smoothing base. Prick with a fork and bake for
30-35 minutes. Allow to cool. Place filling ingredients in a saucepan
and heat slowly, stirring, until sugar has dissolved. Bring to a boil
and simmer for 7-10 minutes, stirring until it thickens. Cool and pour
over base and leave to set. Break up chocolate and add cream; place in
microwave to melt 2 minutes. Spread over caramel and let set.
