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.

  2. These cookies look absolutely scrummy! Now, what if you don’t have access to dulce de leche – it’s not commonly found in Europe, or outside of the Americas really. What would you substitute it with? And can you FedEx me several boxes of these cookies?

    • Hahaha, I will try to send you some cookies, and you can buy dulce de leche online or in the worst case substitute with caramel, or make your own dulce de leche, I will post a how to, next week. Thank you

  3. How lucky for me that my baking this month only used a small bit of my can of dulce de leche and now I can use the rest for your recipe. These sound heavenly!
