There are cookies, and then there are cookies.
A few weeks ago, chef Hugh Acheson of unibrow and Top Chef Masters fame visited General Mills for a “Taste Talk.” The ladies of the Betty Crocker Kitchens rolled out the red carpet for him with these Dulce de Leche Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. I had the good fortune of having a meeting there the next day, and got to try one of these stunners.
It was everything I had ever wanted in a cookie – soft but chewy, sweet with a slight saltiness, chocolate chip laden with a gooey caramel center. And big.
When Mike told me he wanted to bring cookies to work for a United Way kickoff meeting, I knew these would go over like Justin Bieber on My Super Sweet Sixteen.
The verdict – one of Mike’s coworkers said he’d pay $5 for this cookie. Not bad! Once again, Betty knows best.
Until We Eat Again,
Two Happy Cookies
