"This recipe is kind of a mash-up between my mom and me. My mom makes dulce de leche every year, the real stuff, you cook it forever and reduce it down. It's a candy that's really popular in Mexico. And I just thought, what if I didn't cook it quite as long and then used that as a filling? So she had the dulce de leche and I had the cookie, and this is what we came up with. It's something we make every Christmas. I stand around and chat with my mom and my aunts, and we cook and stir and stir and stir.

This week's Culinary SOS request comes from Halah Hassan in Pasadena: "I was wondering if you would be able to get the recipe for the irresistible brown butter cookie at the newly opened and darling Bittersweet Treats on Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena. This cookie is chewy, dense and delicious, and I would very much like to re-create it at home. " Browning butter will give any dish - from savory sauces to creamy icings and glazes - added depth with rich, nutty notes. These cookies are no exception.

Delaney Paterno has been a Girl Scout for five years, but only this year has she tasted any of the cookies she works so hard to sell. That's because she was diagnosed with celiac disease as a toddler, and gluten -- found in wheat, barley and rye -- makes her sick. But this year, the Girl Scouts are selling one flavor of gluten-free cookies as a pilot project. “They're actually very good,” Delaney, 9, said Sunday by phone from her home in Doylestown, Pa. Her Girl Scout council, the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania, is one of the 20 testing the cookies.

Hillary Clinton's comment that she is not baking cookies and having teas is offensive (March 17). She should already know that there is an enormous amount of real work that goes on that is not validated by a paycheck stub. Nor is it given titles of status such as "president, attorney or chairman." The work is being done by people with titles like neighbor, friend, parent and volunteer. When there is time to bake cookies, they are not for some June Cleaver image to be presented to children arriving from school.

We're still standing. Barely. Food editor Russ Parsons, Web producer Jenn Harris and I met with Executive Chef Lachlan Sands and culinary student Donna Feoranzo at Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena to judge the top 50 cookies from our third annual L.A. Times Holiday Cookie Bake-Off. Chefs and culinary students took the top recipes and have been baking all day -- I believe they started at 7 this morning. It was a tough job -- and we're still recovering from the sugar rush -- but we were able to narrow it down to choose our top 10. We'll post the top 10 cookies tomorrow.

Dear SOS: I read your column regularly, and you certainly are able to research the most difficult recipe information with success. My husband loves the Corner Bakery's large oatmeal cookies because they are so chewy and not too sweet. Please see if you can secure the balanced ingredients and directions for the recipe. Beverly Keyser Woodland Hills Dear Beverly: These generous oatmeal cookies are big on both size and flavor, sweetened with brown sugar. It may seem like there's a lot of cinnamon, but it balances nicely with the vanilla and fruit.

A truck trailer overturned and spilled 2,140 boxes of cookies onto California 99 early today. The truck driver was uninjured when his trailer fishtailed and flipped at high speed, splattering cookies over a long stretch of the roadway near Pixley in southern Tulare County. Northbound traffic was detoured onto county roads around the wreck 125 miles north of Los Angeles for almost six hours after the 3:30 a.m. accident.
