Cooking shortbread cookies "A la TWIXX":

Step 1: prepare shortbread dough.

For the shortcrust pastry we only need 80 grams oils. We measure the right amount using a kitchen scale or take 4/5 from available 100g. It is best to cool the oil very much or freeze it first in the refrigerator. If there is a food processor, then kneading the dough - it is better to entrust it to him. Sift flour and salt into the bowl of the combine. Cut the chilled butter into large pieces. Choose a chopping nozzle. At medium speed, chop oil with flour until crumbs are formed, possibly uneven. If there is no food processor, then three frozen butter on a coarse grater directly into the already sifted flour, carefully making sure that the already wiped oil does not stick together in one lump. Then carefully rub the butter and flour mixture with your hands until the same crumbs are formed. Add to the dough. two yolks. To easily separate the yolk from the protein, you need to take two small containers - for yolks and proteins, respectively. Put the raw egg in your palm and gently strike across the back of the knife. A small crack in the shell should form. Above one of the containers (the one in which the proteins will be), carefully expand the crack with your fingers. Protein immediately begins to flow out. The yolk must retain its shape. Move the yolk from one half of the shell to the other until all the protein has flowed out and only the yolk remains in the shell. Add sour cream to the dough and mix everything thoroughly with a spoon, then with your hands. As a result, the gas should have a friable mass, which will be easily molded by hand.

Step 2: bake a shortbread cake.

Take a rectangular baking dish and cover it well with parchment. Pour shortcrust pastry onto parchment. We distribute the dough in the form with a uniform layer and carefully trample it by hand. The result should be a cake with a height of about a centimeter. You should often chop the dough with a fork over its entire area. Place the baking tray with the dough in the refrigerator on 20-30 minutes. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Remove the mold from the refrigerator and put in the preheated oven. Shortcake baked about 20 minutes until light golden. Remove the finished cake from the mold, remove the parchment and leave to cool. Cured cake to shift back into shape.

Step 3: cook the caramel and cover it with shortbread cake.

Pour a can of condensed milk into a pan with a thickened bottom, add the remaining 20 grams butter. Put on the stove and cook over minimal heat, stirring constantly. During cooking, the mixture will thicken and darken. The approximate cooking time for caramel is about 30 minutes. The finished caramel will be thick viscous and will acquire a dark golden hue. In the process of cooling, the caramel will quickly thicken, so you need to immediately shift it to the cake in the form and evenly distribute it over the entire surface with a spatula or knife.

Step 4: melt the chocolate and cover them with cookies.

Break the chocolate into pieces and put in a metal bowl or a small pan. A pan of a slightly larger diameter than the one in which we fill the chocolate with water and put on fire. We put a bowl or pot of chocolate inside a large pot of water. Melt the chocolate in the resulting water bath, stirring occasionally. Carefully remove the chocolate, making sure that no water gets into it. Pour cookies with melted chocolate and smooth on the cake with a spatula. Put the cookie form in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours until completely solidified.

Step 5: cut the finished cookies.

After the chocolate has completely hardened, take it out of the refrigerator and put it on a flat flat surface - a cutting board (wooden or plastic). Cut into small pieces with a sharp knife.

Recipe Tips:

- - in addition to the method described in the recipe, the yolk from the protein can be separated using a special device. It is a round plastic spoon with perforation on the sides and a hole in the bottom. It is enough just to break a raw egg into such a spoon and wait until the protein drains.

- - Sour cream in shortcrust pastry can be replaced with cream or ice water. Then the dough will become less elastic and more fragile.

- - it is important not to digest condensed milk, otherwise it will crystallize, which will significantly complicate the process of applying it to the cake.

- - For those to whom the combination of caramel and milk chocolate seems too sugaryly sweet, we recommend partially replacing milk chocolate with dark bitter chocolate.
