Lemon Thyme and Mocha Caramel Cookies

This past Saturday, the weekend before Thanksgiving, I finally started baking season. Epicurious has a wonderful Holiday Handbook out this year and both of these cookies are twists on the classic sugar cookie.

For the glaze, I recommend going ahead and using 1 cup of powdered sugar and just mixing it with freshly squeezed lemon juice. It adds a wonderful flavor to the cookies.

You can buy dulce de leche at the store, but if you have the time definitely make it yourself. I used the traditional method from the recipe I linked above and found that it took me closer to 2 – 2.5 hours. But, it was so worth it. It’s the first time I’ve ever made dulce de leche and after tasting it, I’m not sure what took me so long.

From milk, sugar, and baking soda to dulce de leche.
