Make dough from the
flour with 150 gram butter and 75 gram sugar. Roll the mixture out into
a large rectangle in an oven dish. Bake 20 minutes at 165 degrees
Celsius. Boil the rest of the butter,
the rest of the sugar and the cream (stir well all the time!) on a medium
high fire until it begins to turn brown. Spread it over the cookie rectangle.
Melt the chocolate with one tablespoon cream. Make patterns on top of
the caramel with a spoon (see picture). Cut the cookie-rectangle into
30 smaller rectangles.

This is a Scottish recipe. I was inspired by a
Scottish ball;I once visited, after which
I started looking for the recipe of haggis, and thus found a website
traditional Scottish recipes.
In Scotland one serves shortbread for New Year.
