I saw this on Pinterest and knew that I would have to try it. I made it yesterday morning for our Alpha Class. The original can be found at That Skinny Chick Can Bake.
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup brown sugar
pinch of salt
1 cup diced cold butter
1 can dulce de leche, room temperature
Heat the oven to 350F. Line an 11X7" baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a food processor add all the ingredients except the dulce de leche. Pulse a couple of times until it comes together in a ball. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cookie dough. Shape it into an oval disc, wrap it in plastic wrap and place it into the freezer.
The remaining dough, press it evenly on the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, open the can of dulce de leche, place the thick caramel sauce in a small saucepan, and heat it gently on the store, stirring constantly.
Take the pan out of the oven and pour the warm dulce de leche over it.
Grate the frozen reserved cookie dough over the dulce de leche layer and bake for further 30 minutes or until golden brown and the sides are bubbly.
Take the pan out of the oven and leave to cool completely before cutting into bars. Enjoy!
These came out FANTASTIC! I am definitely going to make them again!
