KBB#10 Caramel Pots with Minted Shortbread Sticks

Since I landed my eyes on KBB (Klub Berani Baking) which was founded by Mbak Arfi, I badly wanted to join because I love baking and a baking club would be sufficient to learn more things about baking. After some months of waiting finally my first KBB challenge.

At first I was a bit confuse, what do you suppose to do with caramel pots and shortbread sticks but I flicked into the milis and got lots of pencerahan. Special thanks to Ningku sing paling ayu dewe Rachmah Setyawati ^_*

I made this with hardly any difficulties, thanks to all the tips and tricks from all the KBB’ers. Just that when I made the caramel my hands were itching to stir the sugar but pfiuh I took a hold on myself and didn’t do it. My caramel pots took double time in the oven than expected which was 30minutes. Then came the shortbread sticks, I cut the sugar amount down to 50% since again some tips said so and boy was I glad I did that otherwise the taste would be far too sweet for my taste buds. I also used 12 mint leaves but somehow the tasted wasn’t as minty as I I expected. When I wanted to rolled the dough, it stick to the surface and the rolling pin, but I put the dough for some hours in the fridge and voila my problem solved.

All in all it wasn’t that crazily difficult, pfiuh. I liked the caramel pots because I like everything caramel, the shortbread sticks melted in your mouth. Thanks for the hosts; Dita and Lina for hosting this challenge.
