Expert Tips

You can add liquid dulce de leche to this recipe.

I remember my first times in the kitchen were spent watching my sister and my mom cook. I always wanted to be a participant, but as the youngest in the house, they rarely let me. Later, I got the title of "sauce taster," and I got to help my sister with seasoning and tasting what she prepared. Little by little I learned recipes, and once in a while I experimented with things without much success. I've always been fond of sweets, so my recipes always had something sweet. Among my favorite recipes is the frosted arequipe cookie, which brings back fond memories of my childhood. Since I've always had a sweet tooth, arequipe usually finds a place in my desserts, since this sweet caramel treat always makes me happy. It also makes for a great remedy for sadness, so when I'm not feeling my best, one spoonful will usually (and instantly) lift my spirits. I invite you to try this delicious dessert and add a touch of happiness to your menu. You're going to be happy you did!

The amount of cream depends on how sweet you want it. The more cream you use, the less sweet the dessert will be.

Directions

  • 1 Mix the arequipe and cream in a blender until well combined.
  • 2 Pour a layer of the mixture into a deep container and cover with a layer of cookies. Try not to leave spaces, (break the cookies if necessary). Then add another layer of the mixture and another layer of cookies.
  • 3 Repeat these steps until you finish with a layer of arequipe with cream. Freeze for about 4 hours.
