My mom still can’t get over this recipe. Have a look at the video and see her reaction when she first tastes it. This is a desert worth sharing, it’s a cookie but it’s almost like a cake thanks to the icing-ish dulce de leche. Most importantly though? It’s the perfect excuse to gather with friends and enjoy something decadent.

I can’t wait to make myself another one to share with my family while we watch the Sound of Music (I know, I know it’s not a Christmas movie but it’s my own tradition hehe!)

You can also make this in a greased cast iron pan, which can then be served on the table and everybody simply takes a pieces.

Ingredients

Cookie
  • 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup of brown sugar, compacted
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of instant coffee
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of crushed almonds
Garnish
  • 1 1/2 cup of dulce de leche, store-bough or homemade
  • 1 cup of puffed rice
  • 1 cup of melted dark chocolate (Baker’s for example)

Steps

  1. Preheat the oven at 375 °F and place the rack at the center of it. Grease a 9” round cake pan, then set aside.
  2. Combine the flour, brown sugar, sugar, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Dig up a small hole in the middle of the mix then set aside.
  3. In another bowl, melt the butter in the microwave then add the coffee. Pour the dry ingredients in along with the eggs, vanilla extract and water then stir together.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and almonds, then stir until smooth.
  5. Press the dough into the bottom of the cake pan and bake for 18 to 20 minutes.
  6. Spread the dulce de leche onto the cookie, then let cool for 30 minutes.
  7. Add the puffed rice, melted dark chocolate & enjoy.

Tips & tricks

To make your own dulce de leche, completely submerge (make sure there is at least 5 cm of water above it) a can of condensed milk in a pot (while first removing the wrapping on the can) and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let simmer for 3 hours while turning the can over every half hour. It’s very important that there is water over the can at all times.
