Shortbread, chocolate, and caramel, but it is not Twix

Inspired by The National Geographic Channel, I am going to posts about gourmet on my blog. Cooking is one of the most accurate things in the world, not in measuring, but the details of its creation, which must be at least palatable. Cooking is not only a therapy or need, it is an art that many despise when they limit their food to rice and beans. What about bulgogi instead of a steak? Baked potatoes instead of rice? Would you like to try tempura, or would you rather stick to the status quo? Frankly, there is no problem in eating our traditional Brazilian food you find in any buffet restaurant. The problem is to die eating the same flavors every day. No more olive oil on the pizza! So today, I took a recipe from a blog that I love. They're the best cookies I've ever made, inspired by the article in "The New York Times" that said that everyone likes caramel with a touch of salt. See the recipe!

So, the dough is very simple. Just mix together 3/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 egg and 2 cups flour. Leave it in the fridge for four hours. Then roll the dough out, cut it in the shape you want, and bake it at 350ºF for about 10 minutes. Make a ganache and place it on the edges of half the amount of cookies already cold. For the filling, make a caramel by melting 1/2 cup sugar. After it is amber, add 3/8 cup cream and 1/4 cup salted butter. Put the caramel onto the cookies, and cover the "sandwich" with the a non-caramelized cookie.
