Let me start off by saying my day and my belly have been filled with Dulce de Leche Duos cookie dough, Dulce de Leche filling, and finally the finished product!
This recipe was selected by Jodie of Beansy Loves Cake. I love cookies and these were no exception! I went to a local foo-foo store near my job and asked if they carried dulce de leche in a jar. I was in luck, they did and at the same time a customer chimed in and said she makes it all the time at home and gave me the stove top method. Once I got home, I started looking at all the posts for the different methods of making this. I obviously had already bought the jar and took the lazy man's way out!
Looking at the posts of the folks who made their own, the jarred version is a lot darker (and very tasty!). Yes, you can eat this stuff right out of the jar ... and I did! I used a small scoop instead of a teaspoon for the cookie dough. This worked well for consistent size. Once the cookies were cooled, I was kind of sparing on spreading the filling. These cookies are very sweet and don't need a lot to throw them over the top.
