Millionaire’s shortbread is a treasure trove of luxury. Indeed, its name derives from the wealth of rich components that comprise each slice. It is nothing short of a confectionary dream - buttery, crumbly shortbread and soft, salty caramel atop with bittersweet dark chocolate. Done well, it perfectly harmonises richness, creaminess, sharpness and for me, spice. When you bite into a square of millionaire’s shortbread your teeth should sink and glide effortlessly through each layer, leaving behind deep tunnels, a mapped memory of your pilgrimage to taste nirvana. A piece is the ultimate companion to a drizzly afternoon slump or midday sugar lull, providing an injection of decadence to reboot the dreary.
