DULCE DE LECHE AND NUTELLA THUMBPRINTS

you just can't beat the delicate buttery texture of good shortbread cookies. in fact, i'm often tempted to think every cookie should start as a shortbread cookie! add caramel or chocolate-hazelnut, top them with sea salt...and you have something utterly addictive, a swear-worthy cookie!
