Let can cool for a long time before opening. If you do not do this the carmel in the can will shoot out and land on the floor for a very sticky mess or if you are lucky on your face which will end with a very painful burn. Trust me it happened to me. But they tasted really yummy.

This recipe was a great example of chilean culture. The only thing i noticed is taht the cookies stick even with butter in the pan! I used the sweetened condensed milk too, and there was a little explosion! great recipe though!

What a great and easy recipe! I was a little apprehensive about the condensed milk can boiling part, but it turned out great. I would use sweetened condensed milk, though. I had Chile for a country project and this was the PERFECT dish.

This recipe was a keeper! Use sweetened condensed milk, by the way. As a lot of people already said, my spanish class loved them. This recipe makes about 18 cookies, but when you put them together, 9. One regular sized can of condensed milk will make enough for 2 batches.

Delicious cookies. I found using condensed milk was already sweet enough. I think folks were thinking of evaporated milk which is not as sweet. These were easy to make.

The cookies were really good =] but not the best ones i've ever tasted, but my spanish class loved them. To anyone who makes these, try using sweetend condensed milk with normal caramel mixed together, it tastes better that way, at least i think!

The cookies almost taste like nilla waffers, but I was upset because the condensed milk never really carmalized when I made this recipe. I hope my spanish class likes them.
