I thought I might share some of my other creativity. I've been learning to bake for maybe a year and a half now, and while social isolating I've put some treats together based on what we happen to have in the house. First I made some "millionaire's shortbread cookies". Then I made brownies with chocolate frosting. These lovelies are the most recent creation: caramel-filled brown sugar cupcakes topped with crème mousseline and dipped in more caramel.

Millionaire shortbread is one of my favourite things ever! [:D] How did you take that and switch it over to cookies?

The most recent creation look goooooood. The only disappointing thing about them is... that I don't have them! [:P]
You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.
Just one time.

I happened to find a shortbread cookie recipe in a Mary Berry cookbook (the fact it only calls for three ingredients was a plus). I also had some evaporated milk, so I used it in a kind of faux-caramel sauce and a chocolate ganache. Some of the cookies I drizzled with both. Some I topped with a layer of caramel sauce and drizzled with ganache. It might've been neat to do full layers of both, but first I want to get better at working with chocolate. Also, those cupcakes are the first time I've made true caramel, by boiling sugar, so if/when I do the cookies again they'll have real caramel.

Haha! Glad you like the look of them. Someone needs to invent taste-o-vision.
