The first cookbook I ever bought for myself was British cooking star Nigella Lawson's How to Be A Domestic Goddess. It's still my baking bible — the book I turn to whenever I'm looking for some quick kitchen inspiration.

When I found myself needing some last-minute but impressive treats to give as holiday gifts to friends and co-workers this past weekend, I flipped through the book and found this gem of a recipe for layered shortbread, marked with a scrap of paper. Obviously I'd planned to make it at some point, and it seemed that moment had arrived. They sounded delicious, looked elegant and had only 6 ingredients. Perfect!  

I whipped up a batch to package and distribute to friends, but they were so good my family ate them and I had to start over!

Nigella gives instructions to make the caramel and melt the chocolate in the microwave. I don't own one, so I provided directions for my own stovetop version which, I'm happy to report, was also easy-peasy.  If you're looking for a last-minute holiday treat, you must give these a try.
