These chocolate caramel shortbread cookies are delicate, rich, and candy-like.
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/4 all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping
1/4 cup slivered almonds, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup milk chocolate chips
Heat oven to 325°F. Line 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, extending over edges 1 inch.
Combine butter, powdered sugar and brown sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Press dough into prepared pan; prick with fork every 1/2 inch. Bake 22-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Lift cookies from pan using aluminum foil ends. Place on cutting board. Immediately cut into 30 (2 3/4x3/4-inch) pieces.

These are so delicious it's hard to stop eating them. And they look so beautiful too! They've won awards at the fair every year I've made them.
Made these for our state fair with a variation of my own and they were a delicious and tasty award winner. My mom loves them, too! They also taste great with caramel sprinkled over the top too.
