Salted Dulce de Leche Pretzel Thumbprints

I have been baking a lot less in the last few years and I am trying to get back to my kitchen roots slowly. A great  motivator is a group called The Behind the Curtain Dessert Challenge which is all about baking sweets. Every month we are given tow required ingredients to work with. This month it is pretzels and caramel. What a salty sweet combo!

I choose a cookie, basically a buttery shortbread, with crushed pretzels and dulche de leche.
