Got a lot of compliments on this one and loved it myself too!! Boiling the milk in the can is pure genius and worked perfectly! I just brought the water to a boil and then turned down to simmer for the rest of the time. The crust should use only 1/2 to 1/3 cup of butter. I also put the bananas under the toffee to reduce mess and halved the cream as well and garnished with Skor bits on top (available at your local Bulk Barn or you can crush up your own candy bar!). Got rave reviews!

Polvorones de Canele (Cinnamon Cookies)
Very easy, tasty cookies! I used margarine instead of butter since that's what I had on hand. I also added 1/4 C more sugar and left out 1/4 C flour to make them sweeter. They spread out a bit more than the ones pictured, but they were very yummy!

Buttery Soft Pretzels
Very yummy pretzels! I had to use about 6 T more water than called for, since I used a bread maker. Also, I think they would be better with a bit less sugar. Maybe 1/3 C instead of 1/2. Over all they are really, really tasty though. I made a few with cinnamon sugar instead of salt, per my husband's suggestion. Will definitely use this recipe again!

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
