I love Mexican cajeta. It’s one of those delicacies that I enjoyed for the first time upon moving to California. Mexican dulce de leche combines boiled goat milk, brown sugar and cinnamon. About a week ago, I prepared these delicious pumpkin and cajeta bites filled with almonds and garnished with a little shredded coconut. They turned out irresistible. Try them for yourself today!
