This is my recipe for Café du Leche Snicker doodles.
I got onto the Dulce de Leche
bandwagon a little late but I'm catching up for lost time. There are variations of how Dulce de Leche is made, here I’m focusing on the home style method where a can of condensed sweetened milk is boiled for a period of time until carmelization and the Maillard reaction
has occurred in the can. The resulting life changing caramel is then stuffed into Snicker Doodle dough and rolled in a sugar/espresso mixture where upon hitting the oven it develops a candy crust. You have to try this recipe, aside from long cooking time of the Dulce de Leche you can whip this recipe up and have a tray of them cooking in the oven in under 15 minutes. You could always cheat and buy a commercially made bottle of Dulce de Leche if low on time. The classic Snicker Doodle is rolled in a cinnamon sugar mix that also tastes good with this recipe, but the espresso really ramps up the flavours. If you have little ones who may not be keen on the caffeine jolt, roll a couple in cinnamon sugar for them.
