Cookies and Dulce de Leche, Need I Say More?

Nov 10, 2016

Two posts in one day? Guys, this is important.

makes about 34 cookies

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or coarse sea salt
  • 1 3/4 cups (3 1/2 sticks) butter at room temperature, cut into pieces
  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (I had/used milk chocolate)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1 cup pretzels broken into about 1/2-inch pieces
Cajeta or dulce de leche to drizzle on top optional (Mandatory, trust. Bought a jar super cheap at Trader Joe's)

To Prepare
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter over medium speed. Add sweetened condensed milk and beat until fully combined and fluffy. Reduce mixer speed to low and slowly add the flour mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl if need be. Continue to mix until it is all incorporated and the dough is smooth, about 1 minute. Fold in the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and pretzel pieces by hand with a rubber spatula.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Form 1-inch balls and place them at least 1-inch apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the bottoms of the cookies are lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  • For an extra treat, you may drizzle cajeta or dulce de leche on top.

The only change I'd make next time is adding a bit more pretzels. That salty crunch is, EVERYTHING. By day three we were full on addicted, making cookie sandwiches slathered with dulce de leche.  


  1. I was sold after 3 1/2 sticks of butter.

  2. That sounds very yummy and tempting. I just cannot wait to try out this recipe. The cookies look amazing in the pictures, I hope mine turn out to be just as amazing if not more.
