A batch of shortbread with caramel filling sitting on a tray. There is a jar next to the tray also filled with shortbread.

This shortbread with caramel filling is the perfect accompaniment to a good cup of tea or espresso, and it’s so easy to make. Using just a handful of pantry staples, our caramel shortbread recipe is a simple way to spend a weekend afternoon if you get the urge to bake up a storm.

The pink salt flakes bring out the richness and sweetness of the caramel filling, which can be made ahead of time so you don’t need to juggle it alongside the shortbread. Just be warned – it is more-ish and delicious, so be careful not to eat it all with a spoon before your bake is done.

Want to bake multiple batches? Then a NEFF oven with Circo Therm® allows you to bake multiple trays of the shortbread at once without having to rotate trays. You’ll guarantee an even bake on all the batches of shortbread – not too soft and not too crumbly.
