A buttery shortbread base is the throne to a special caramel filling all topped off with a yet another unique chocolate triumphurate crown. No wonder these are Millionaire Bars –they are a treasure. Forget about the economy, breathe in and out, and munch on one of these.If you like Twix bars but even better - this is just the ticket.

Apples, filo, and company coming in an hour? Be prepared to serve seconds and have recipe printed out - they'll be asking for it.

I only make these squares using Californian apricots (Bella Viva Orchards is my source of supply. But you can also use dried mango, which I get from Costco. Nothing beats the sweet but tangy filling of apricot (or mango) in these luscious, easy squares. These have a bit of oatmeal in them but you can also try my recipe for Apricot Squares that are shortbread based.

These are so good you'll hear about it all the way from Kilkarney to Kildare. This is a sinfully decadent brownie with the kiss of the Irish in it. 

A Middle-Eastern delight

Not so classic but oh-so-good - what are oranges, lemons and limes doing in this buttery, decadent baklavah? Find great honey (clover or orange blossom) instead of plain old supermarket honey which has little taste, add a little filo pastry and you're a hero. In minutes, you can assemble this buttery, sweet, Greek treat that will having you dancing Zorba around the kitchen.

Dark, bakery-style brownies with a shiny bittersweet glaze.If you want these thick, use a 7 by 11 inch pan; if you prefer them flatter and chewier, make them in a 9 by 13 inch pan.

I like bold bars, racing with extra stuff. These have a layer of raspberry preserves bridging the shortbread base with its tangy topping.

Gooey, rich and summery squares. Big hunks to munch on at the outdoor terrace or city square or courtyard  (those cement and grass squares between buildings) on a lunch break at work or strolling in the park. This classic bar soars to new heights with contemporary touches of berries and white chocolate.

Buttermilk Cinnamon Biscotti is a mellow and spicy combination. It is like cinnamon toast but in a snappy stick of biscotti.
