Recipe: Billionaire Shortbread

Billy G’s Gourmet Cookie Dough makes a wonderful base for a lot of very tasty (and slightly wicked) desserts. This Billionaire Shortbread that we came across on Delish is no exception.

This Billionaire Shortbread is based on a recipe from Delish by Lauren Miyashiro – Photo by Jonathan Boulton.


Shortbread Layer

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Caramel Layer

  • 60 caramels
  • 6 tbsp. heavy cream

Cookie Dough Layer

  • Your choice of Billy G’s Gourmet Cookie Dough

Chocolate Layer

  • 1 1/2 cup melted chocolate
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil (melted)
  • Flaky sea salt, for garnish


Step 1

Preheat oven to 150 degrees celcius. Line an 8-x-11″ pan with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.

Step 2

Make shortbread layer: In a large bowl, using a hand mixer, beat 1 cup butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and blend 30 seconds. Add 2 cups flour and blend until a breadcrumb texture forms.

Step 3

Press mixture into a prepared pan and prick all over with a fork. Bake until lightly golden, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely.

Step 4

Make caramel layer: In a small saucepan over low heat, add caramels and melt down until creamy, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes. Stir in heavy cream and let thicken, stirring occasionally to make sure mixture doesn’t burn, 15 minutes. Pour over cooled shortbread crust. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until firm.

Step 5

Thaw out your chosen tub of Billy G’s Cookie Dough for at least two hours to make it easy to spread. We’d recommend Double Choc Chunk, but it’s your choice. Spread on top of caramel layer. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.

Step 6

Make chocolate layer: In a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water, melt chocolate. If mixture is thick, add vegetable oil and stir until completely combined. Pour over cookie dough layer.

Step 7

Refrigerate 20 minutes until firm, then slice into bars.
