I'm a caramel lover.
When I was young, I satisfied my caramel cravings with my mom's caramel corn, See's Candies Scotcheroos and Rollos.
Now that I'm a bit older and have a more experienced palate...well I still like those things. But I love finding new ways to use and make caramel things.
I love mixing caramel with chocolate and even more so salt, you can't beat fleur de sel.
But this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, chosen by Jodie of Beansy Loves Cake has neither chocolate or a special sea salt in the recipe. Jodie chose Dulce de Leche Duo cookies!
And I'm sure glad she did. This is probably the recipe I would have chosen if she didn't. (Speaking of that...my pick is in May and um..I'm stoked!)
I loved these cookies through and through. They were far too simple to make considering the amount of deliciousness that you experience eating them.
I really had no problems making the cookies, unless you count the first two trays I did where I accidentally portioned the dough in one tablespoon sizes instead of one teaspoon. Oopsie and oh-well.
I used store-bought dulce de leche. But after learning from my TWD baker friends that you can make your own in a variety of ways, (see this post) I freaking wish I would have made my own.
Visit Jodie's blog for the recipe and the other Tuesday with Dorie bakers who made them to see how theirs turned out. :)
These cookies are linked to Taste and Tell's Thursdays!
