I have officially let go of my grip on Summer, and have moved on to Fall. It wasn’t an easy break-up. I sometimes cry at night as I remember rooftop bars, maxi-dresses, and frosé. Thank goodness I have Dulce de Leche in my life though. It’s soft, creamy, sweetness really helps with my Summer time sadness.
You know what else helps? DESSERT!!
This past weekend, my sweet tooth was on level 10. I was also craving empanadas and so in addition to making beef empanadas, I decided it would be pretty damn awesome to make a dessert one as well. Since it is Fall, the obvious choice was an apple empanada. Duh!
However, a cinnamon apple empanada would not be enough to crave my sweet tooth. Of course the next obvious choice would be to add Dulce de Leche! The combination of sweet Dulce de Leche and cinnamon apple made me feel warm and fuzzy all over. After one bite, I was officially happy that it was Fall!
