This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Jodie of Beansy Loves Cake. She chose Dorie’s Dulce de Leche Duos which are located on page 161 in Baking: From My Home to Yours.
I MADE IT
with 1.5 hours to spare 🙂
The excuse for not completing the cookies earlier in the day is: I got called into work.
I was going about my morning activities on my day off and I had just made the cookie dough. I placed it in the fridge to firm up while I ran the rest of my errands, and the phone rings. It was work asking if I could come in for 3 hours.
Sure, okay…so I didn’t get around to baking the cookies until 8pm. It took a little bit more time than usual because I decided that I wanted to add some decorations to the cookies because brown on brown for cookies is pretty dull.
Chocolate Drizzle is always the answer.
Essentially this a sandwich cookie that has dulce de leche sauce in the cookie and sandwiched between them. I used one jar of purchased dulce de leche sauce for the dough and for the filling I mixed the excess from the first jar and then made David Lebovitz Dulce de leche from sweetened condensed milk because I didn’t feel like making a trip to the grocery store just for more sauce. Everything actually came together without a hitch.
The chocolate drizzle was refusing to set on the cookies because the kitchen was warm, so I popped the cookies in the freezer for about a minute and they set up nicely. I proceeded to fill them and placed the tops on. Verdict, they are very yummy and I like the contrast of the chocolate with it, but I get a weird milk after taste in my mouth. However, I think these would go great with a cup of coffee which would cleanse the milk taste from my palette. I tried a couple of cookies unfilled with drizzle and I think I might prefer them that way. There is a slight sweet and almost maple flavor that the cookie gives off that is nice, and they are chewy 🙂
