In the original recipe, these cookies
are actually called “Melting Moments”. But I amended the filling to be dulce de leche, so I also changed their name. The cookies themselves do melt in your mouth, and the dulce de leche add a nice flavor contrast. The original recipe (which will be provided) includes chocolate butter cream, which would be more melt-y and of course would add a different flavor contrast, as well as a color contrast between the cookie and the filling. You could pretty much choose any flavor for these. Perhaps strawberry for Valentine’s Day? They are pretty easy to make, but I would keep an eye on them because they bake quickly. Although all ovens are different, I don’t think they really need the full 30 minutes as is called for in the recipe. Even though I baked two sheets at once, they still came out dark. For those of you that are new to the site, and/or if you are interested in making more things with dulce de leche, you can check out the dulce de leche brownies recipe that I have and this link will lead you to more information about dulce de leche.
