We’ve officially found the easiest (not to mention cutest) holiday cookie recipe on the internet: Introducing pastry chef Erin McDowell’s brown sugar cookies with dulce de leche, which take, like, 25 minutes to make (plus a little chilling time).
“This is a twist on the classic frosted sugar cookie for the holidays,” McDowell tells us, “but it’s so simple to make. The brown sugar actually makes the cookie dough really easy to roll, so if you normally struggle with rolling out the dough evenly, this one is super smooth. It also holds its shape really nicely for cutouts and festive shapes.”
“Instead of the extra step of making icing, you use dulce de leche,” she continues. “You can make your own, but even I use store-bought, which is so smooth and easy to spread into a thin layer.” And if you’ve got a last-minute cookie swap on the calendar, never fear: Just make the cookies and let them sit out for about 12 hours so the dulce de leche will lose its stickiness. Then the cookies can be stacked and put into cookie tins.
A caramel Christmas really is the best kind, don’t you think?
