Tres Leche Cookies

Tres leches cookies for Margie

If you want to make these for children, omit the liquor and substitute caramel syrup.  For best results, allow them to mature before serving.   They need to be made ahead of time, like rum balls.  Store in freezer until ready to serve.

4 tablespoons butter
½ cup dulce de leche (Nestle)
1 tablespoon vanilla
5 ml (less that ¼ cup) tres leches triple cream liquor
3 cups Vanilla Wafer crumbs (11 ounce box of cookies)
1 ¾ cup (6 ounce bag) pecan pieces
Form into 1-inch balls and flatten to cookie shape, then ice.

1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon dulce de leche
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
3-4 tablespoons cream

Drizzle over cookies, top with:
Edible glitter
