Dulce de Leche "sandwich cookies"

Recipe Ingredients for Alfajores

1 cup sugar
3/4 cups butter
1 cup All Purpose flour
2 1/2 cups cornstarch
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
2 egg yolks
1 cup dulce de leche

Recipe Directions for Alfajores

  1. # In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together.

  2. # Add the remaining ingredients (except condensed milk) and mix thoroughly.

  3. # Knead dough on a floured surface until smooth allowing it to rest for 15-20 minutes before rolling out.

  4. # Roll dough to approximately 1/4 inch thickness.

  5. # Cut 2 inch rounds (1 inch for bite-size cookies).

  6. # Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 300 degrees for 20 minutes.

  7. # Let cool completely.

  8. # Spread dulce de leche (recipe follows) on one cookie and place another on top thereby making a sandwich cookie. (Personally, I like it as thick as possible)

  9. # As an option you can sprinkle the sandwich cookies with powdered sugar. Additionally, you can press cookies so filing squeezes out the side and proceed to roll in grated coconut.
