I tried this recipe today because it sounded interesting...it was good...I added some heath bar toffee chips to the top then baked them and instead of the glaze I melted chocolate and drizzled it on top...I will make these again but I'll cut back on some of the sugar and I'll try mixing the toffee chips in instead of just pressing them in on top....also I might try pecans to off set the sweetness a bit....but overall this is a good shortbread recipe
