All the cookies the we make today are inspired in this celebration, all Mexican or latin inspired cuisine.
I made, this delicious Dulce de Leche cookies, so easy and so good, they are made with only a few ingredients and I know you don’t believe it but the flavor of the dulce the leche is not heavy, so you can enjoy more then one piece, and the change I did is the instead of round cookies I spice it up by making little squares or bars, easier and different you know me I’m very practical, I like simple and easy recipes.
