Weekend Bakes: Vegan Salted Caramel Millionaire’s Shortbread

Oh, my darling dears, how the weekend is in sight… just a couple of days until another glorious pre-Christmas weekend. This weekend, I will be caroling with my Mum (before settling in together for the final of Strictly Come Dancing!) and going to Christmas lunch with my oldest friends.

One of these not-so-old, old friends just happens to be the most stylish girl I know, Kate Baxter, author of lifestyle blog Fabric of My Life.

A while back, Kate had to give up dairy for health reasons. She was not exactly thrilled about the prospect of life bereft of butter but has adapted fabulously to her changing dietary requirements and thrown herself into the world of vegan alternatives – she still eats meat though… which confuses her local pizzeria no end when she orders vegan pizza with prosciutto!

Last year, we were gathering for a homecooked Christmas meal and I was charged with taking desserts. Not wanting Kate to be left out, and being something of a vegan baker, I adapted my Salted Caramel Millionaire’s Shortbread recipe for her. It went down so well that Kate featured the recipe on her blog and all pictures in this post are shamelessly pilfered from that gorgeous place. If you love this styling, please head on over to Fabric of My Life as this is only the tip of the iceburg.

This is a totally inclusive bake for the weekend and one to keep, should you have anyone unable to eat dairy visiting your Christmas table. What a lovely gift a batch of these would make, delivered in a festive tin. Just remember to chill before slicing as this can be a little messy!

Stay gorgeous!
