Carmelitas…Never heard of them? Me either until I saw the delicious pictures over at Lisa is Cooking blog. Lisa found the recipe in an issue of Food & Wine. These bar cookies feature chocolate, pecans and dulce de leche. I decided to make these for a picnic I had to go and I always like to bring some sweets. Everyone seemed to enjoy them and I will say they were good but when I look at Lisa’s they look a helluva lot better than mine. They were very heavy and dense. I probably wouldn’t make them again. The oats flavor was just too strong for me. But overall, not bad. Here’s the link to the recipe.

Overall rating – 3 stars

    I made something very similiar from the Pillsbury website. It came out terrible – too bad to even include in my blog. Yours look good though!
