Well, after my disappointment with NYC cookies, I decided to test out a bunch of cookie recipes until I find the best ones. This fits in well with procrastinating. So here is Part I.
I made some oatmeal crispies. I got the recipe from a blogger that I super-respect. While these cookies were good, they were not awesome. Until I tweak the recipe a little, I will not post it, because obviously I only want to be associated with cookies that will blow your freaking mind.
Regardless, they are very pretty little cookies. Especially when made into little cookie sandwiches stuffed with homemade dulce de leche.
I plan to tweak the oatmeal crispies recipe just a bit until I get something perfect. In the meantime, I will share my recipe (which I found on Pinterest) for homemade dulce de leche. Super easy. Yummy yummy yummy!
(Obviously I couldn’t decide whether to use the flash or not.)
Dulce de Leche (Caramel)
Take a can of sweetened condensed milk.
Put can into slow cooker on low heat. Make sure the can is COMPLETELY submerged. Cook for 8 hours.
Then rinse under cool water and put into the fridge while still warm. The can needs to refrigerate for at least two hours to finalize the deliciousness-process (read: I don’t know what the importance of refrigerating the can is, but apparently it’s important).
Enjoy! Eat it with pretzels, with cookies, with apples… on a spoon…
