Cut butter into small pieces and then give butter along with 250 grams flour, 125 grams sugar, 1 egg, 1 sachet vanilla sugar, ½ sachet baking powder and a pinch of salt into a mixing bowl. Mix all ingredients with your hands for about 4 – 5 minutes to form a smooth dough. After that transfer the shortcrust to the prepared baking sheet and line it evenly with the pastry.
Then bake the in a preheated oven for about 15 – 20 minutes until golden brown, remove from the oven and allow cool.
…for the caramel layer:
Give 400 grams of soft butterscotch candies together with 100 milliliters of cream & 50 grams of butter into a saucepan & heat up over low to medium heat. Melt the caramel candies while stirring constantly, then pull the saucepan from heat and allow to cool for about 5 minutes at room temperature.
Pour the melted caramel onto the baked shortcrust and spread evenly, then allow to cool or harden for about 30 – 45 minutes.
