These are the most delicious and easiest cookies I have ever made and tasted. Over the years, I have come to appreciate shorter versions of dishes that I use to spend loads of time preparing. The ideal result for me is a treat or dish that is delicious, one everyone enjoys, and one that I didn’t spend days or many hours preparing. These cookies are that special. I use to make the Dulce de Leche filling on top of the stove mixing whole milk, sugar, vanilla beans, etc,& watching and stirring occasionally for about 3 hours. Granted it was delicious. This too is delicious & easier -no stiring!

We LOVE this homemade dulce de leche! It's so good I could just eat it by the spoonful. These delicious cookies are really easy to make, just be sure to keep an eye on them while they're in the oven so they don't burn. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
