Dulce de Leche Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mi carino has been in Waco, Texas for the last two months.  My weekends have evolved into an overdose of girl time.  There have been countless tea parties, breakfast for every meal, glam make-up sessions and way too many fruity drinks laced with colorful straws.  Have I missed mi carino? With every ounce of my heart, but we needed this, rewind truthfully I needed this.

My girls are quickly growing up, blooming into little ladies and transforming right before my eyes. So when hubby announced he would be leaving us. I silently shrieked with joy.  My plan for the 2 months and every month from now until the very last minute they leave my side is to connect, establish a solid relationship and enjoy my girls.  And have I ever.  Bowls of cereal at midnight, reading in bed until noon, pretty nails in every color and baking, lots of baking.

With mi carino coming home soon we decided we needed to squeeze in one more Friday night baking treatPonytails, socks, One direction music blaring and cookies. 

{FUN}

Dulce de leche and chocolate chips were the plan for the evening. Fresh from the oven with a glass of cold milk these caramel colored cookies were a hit. These cookies bake quickly, so keep an eye on them and adjust your baking time to your oven. Mine came in at about 7 minutes.

Cookies and Girl time does it get any better? Enjoy~

Notes

Recipe adapted from The Dinner Club and Giada

Notes from The Dinner Club: The first time I made these cookies I had to throw away the majority of them because I over baked them. This time I baked them for 8 minutes, and it was still a minute too long. But, I didn't have to throw these cookies away. They were just a tad crisp.

      Hi Margarita~
      Dulce de Leche is a rich and decadent sauce or syrup, similar in flavor to caramel. Unlike caramel, however, which is made by heating sugar, dulce de leche is prepared by heating sweetened condensed milk. Dulce de leche is especially common in the desserts of various South American countries, including Argentina and Uruguay. Thanks for stopping by~
