TWD - BWJ: Hungarian Shortbread

The two recipes for TWD this month are Hungarian Shortbread and Pecan Sticky Buns. I went to the store on Saturday and bought everything for Pecan Sticky Buns because I thought they were first. Right before I started making the recipe I thought I would check the TWD site. It's a good thing I did because I found out that Hungarian Shortbread was first!

This recipe calls for a layer of jam in the middle - specifically a homemade rhubarb jam. I would've LOVED to make that jam but I didn't want to make a run back to the store since I had just gotten home. I did what I had to do... I used a layer of Nutella in place of the jam. :)

These bars were amazing but then again anything with Nutella is amazing in my book!

Thanks to Lynette of 1 Small Kitchen and Cher of The Not So Exciting Adventures of a Dabbler for hosting this week. The recipe can be found at their blogs.

Wow - Nutella in this was sure to be a star! Great thinking at the last minute. And now, you have everything to make the sticky buns!

I contemplated Nutella, but chose instead to go half lemon curd and half blueberry-cherry jam. Not sure why anyone would ruin perfectly good shortbread with rhubarb ;)

I don't think this is the first time that Nutella has saved the day for a baker. Good to know it works well in this recipe.
