For this week's assignment, Jodie of Beansy Loves Cake chose the Dulce de Leche Duos from page 161 of BFMHTY.
Julie posted on the TWD site this week and it was awesome! At first I was kinda scared b/c it seemed very solid, but it got pretty creamy once I gave it a good stir...I may have overcooked it just a tad, but I don't think it hurt these at all. Such an easy way to get wonderful creamy caramel whenever you want!
Well, these cookies were also a big hit at our dinner for Lacey. I made them on Sunday afternoon, and guess what? Hubs even liked them! (he did not try the sandwich ones though) I love how soft and chewy they are, and the caramel flavor really comes through. I took the leftovers to work where they were eaten by most (we did have one nay-sayer. boo) and everyone seemed to like them a lot there too.
Thanks for the awesome challenge Jodie! And for those of you who want to make your own Dulce de Leche at home, all you have to do is sit a can of sweetened condensed milk in your slow cooker/crock pot and cover it with water (there should be an inch or two of water above the can). Turn your cooker on low and just let it cook for 8-10 hours. After that time is up, turn the cooker off and allow the water and cans to cool back to room temperature befure opening and eating. Use it on ice cream, in brownies, or in these awesome cookies!
