Toffee Shortbread Sandwiches


Recipe makes about 15 sandwiches


250g butter

½ cup icing sugar

5ml vanilla

¾ teaspoon salt

2 cups flour

castor sugar for dusting

Darling Sweet Bird’s Eye Chili Toffee Spread


In the bowl of a standing mixer using the paddle attachment, beat sugar until fluffy (+- 5 minutes), occasionally scraping down sides of bowl.

Add icing sugar and vanilla and beat for another 5 minutes, occasionally scraping down the sides of the bowl.

Combine and whisk together flour and salt. Add flour to butter mixture and beat on low until flour is just incorporated and dough sticks together.

Divide dough into two discs and wrap in clingwrap. Refrigerate until firm (about 30 minutes).

Preheat oven to 180˚C and line two baking sheets with baking paper.

Roll discs out on flour-dusted surface to a 1cm thickness and use cookie cutter to cut out circles. We used a 3cm round cutter.

Bake for 12 minutes until firm. Prick with fork and dust with castor sugar. Let cool completely on sheet.

Slightly heat Darling Sweet Bird’s Eye Chili Toffee Spread in microwave for about 20 seconds and spread onto cookie. Place another cookie on top to form your sandwich.
