I’m a big fan of shortbread. There is something so delicious that happens when you combine butter and powdered sugar. We took this thumbprint cookie recipe to a new level by adding apple pie flavor from an instant oatmeal packet and a can of dulce de leche. The results were scrumptious and bold. Dulce de leche is caramelized condensed milk.
There are many variations of dulce de leche from Europe, Central and South America. You should be able to find the Nestle brand La Lechera dulce de leche in most grocery stores. You could also go to your local Hispanic market to try cajeta, a Mexican confection of caramelized goat’s milk which is equally yummy.
Online shoppers head over to Amazon for several variations made here in the U.S. and Argentina.
