Tips And Tricks:

  • When making the date caramel, you may need to scrape down the sides of the food processor a few times to ensure a smooth consistency. If it’s too thick, add a splash of the date water to help blend it.
  • To easily melt the chocolate, mix it with a teaspoon of coconut oil and microwave it in 30-second intervals, stirring well each time.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Can I substitute almond flour with oat flour? While oat flour works, the shortbread may have a slightly different texture.
  • What if I don’t like dates? You can use regular caramel or a mixture of almond butter and maple syrup as a filling, or try another caramel filling recipe.
  • Is 250°F the right temperature? Yes, these cookies bake low and slow to prevent the shortbread from burning too quickly.
