This quickly became both mine and my families favorite cookie.

  • 1 – 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan combine condensed milk and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, while continuing to  whisk
  3. Remove from heat, whisk in butter and vanilla
  4. Place hot carmel on cookie (once the carmel cools it will harden and will not work as a drizzle)
