Shortbread Cookies

It’s not Christmas in our house until I bake a batch (or two) of my grandmother’s shortbread cookies! This simple recipe produces a cookie that is balanced and crumbly as shortbread should be. The addition of rice flour, lowers the gluten content, giving the cookie it’s “short” texture and low and slow cooking ensures a perfectly dried out cookie without caramelizing the sugar in the cookie.

Salted Dulce de Leche Brownies

This is a variation on my Quick and Easy One Bowl Brownies. I had some Homemade Dulce de Leche on hand and decided to try topping my brownie batter with spoonfuls of the dulce de leche and sprinkle on some sea salt. The results were amazing! If you’ve never had Dulce de Leche, it’s like a tangy, creamy caramel that is made from sweetened condensed milk. You can easily make it from the recipe linked above.
