Tuesdays With Dorie: Dulce de Leche Duos

I know, I know. And I’m sorry. There’s been no baking here for weeks. Heck, there’s been almost no eating here for weeks. It’s tragic. And yet, I have lost 12 pounds since the beginning of the year, and Tim has lost 40. It’s hard to argue with results like that.

But I made these cookies a couple of months ago, and they conveniently showed up in the rotation this week. (Thank you, Jodie, of Beansy Loves Cake!) They are yummy: soft and chewy, and oh so sweet. (Maybe a little too sweet, but who’s counting?)

I must confess: I used dulce de leche out of a can. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done it. I’ve made it before, and it’s easy enough. But I decided to make these cookies on the spur of the moment, and I had dulce de leche; more important, I didn’t have condensed milk. So there you are.

Everyone liked these, even Tim, who was officially off carbs at the time. He did suggest just now that they’d be amazing dipped in coffee, and I believe he is correct. I am fighting the urge to make more to test that theory.

I don’t have much else to say: delicious, sweet, soft sandwich cookies. Give them a shot. (Jodie will have the recipe at Beansy Loves Cake.) And read about other bakers’ more recent experiences with them by visiting the other Tuesdays With Dorie blogs. Enjoy!

Great job on the weight loss. I’m afraid that’s what I’m going to have to do–stop baking long enough to lose a few. Sigh!
Your cookies look great. You deserve a treat!

Congratulations on the weight loss–you must have been working hard! Your cookies look great, and the idea of dunking them in coffee makes me want to bake another batch…even though mine were a fail and I ended up making sablees instead.

Your cookies look so good. I baked some but immediately froze them. We’re limiting carbs around here too, which makes baking just a bit tricky, but you can’t argue with results, right? Congrats on the weight loss, especially your hubs.
