Never Bashful With Butter is probably one of my favorite food blogs, hands down. I've fawned over the recipes on that site for so long and I just finally decided to take it upon myself to make something I've seen. Let's just say I'm so glad I did.
I've never made Dulce de leche before and I'm much too unlucky to try the in can method, so I just used a double boiler for the condensed milk. It took about an hour and a half, and I'm not sure that it got dark enough, but it certainly tasted wonderful. Honestly though, I didn't like it much on it's own. The cookie caramel chocolate combo was the real knockout.
I was so excited about this recipe that I put together one cookie, took a picture, and then took a few bites. They were really that good. They definitely called for a glass of milk though. Like I'm not even kidding, I'd feed one to my family member and they'd make yummy food noises and attempt to pantomime drinking in order to get me to pour them some milk. They were rather delicious with or without it though :)
Honestly as soon as I made the dough I knew these were going to be amazing. The butter flavoring seemed strange to me at first because I'd never thought of even using butter flavoring before, but it really did make the difference. The cookies would have been a hit on their own but nothing tops the sandwich version.
