These rich, buttery, marvelous bars bring the crunch of an oatmeal crumble together with the gooey goodness of dulce de leche (and a whole bunch of other yummy flavors).
“I needed to find something to do with all this extra ganache.” That’s how these bars happened. And it seems like a somewhat fitting tagline to my life – a bit of a glimpse into my daily living.
In my epic strawberry consumption efforts this week, I was debating between recipes for a buckle, a cobbler, and a crisp. While the crisp won out primarily on the criteria that I didn’t want to go to the store again (the other options required milk), I’m really glad this happened.
I picked a ton of fresh strawberries this weekend. Well, two gallons to be exact. Which, naturally, means there will be a deluge of strawberry-related baking in the next few days (before I get buried in a mountain of final projects to grade). Thus: strawberry oatmeal cookies.
