Super simple and yummy!
~Mary was GLAD I made them! =)~
On the grocery shelves here is something called "Dulce De Leche". (A spreadable caramel!) There is nearly half of a grocery aisle FILLED with containers of Dulce de leche. Below is a recipe for it.
I have heard that a more simple way of making "Dulce de leche" is to take an UNOPENED can of Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT Evaporated Milk) remove the label and put it in a large sauce pan and boil it for at least 2 hours. Keep adding water so the can remains covered. When done, put cold water in the pan to let it cool off. Store leftovers in the refrigerator in a proper container. So Delicious!!!
When I looked it up on line, it said that boiling the can can be dangerous. So, if you prefer...here's another way to make it. (I found this on line, I haven't tried it.)
You can also make it in a pie pan in the oven.
Oven method: Pour 1 can sweetened condensed milk into 9-inch pie plate. Cover with aluminum foil; place in a larger shallow pan. Fill larger pan with hot water. Bake at 425 for 1 hour or until thick and caramel-colored. Beat until smooth.
(For an "American version" If you can't find the "dulce de leche" (caramel) and don't feel like making it, you could put jelly (or choc. frosting) between the cookies and then roll in coconut or nuts.)
~We were very HAPPY with how our little cookies turned out...and when I served them to our landlady...she said that there are better than what's in the bakeries here! You can be assured that that made me SMILE! =)
