How to make it

  • In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together.
  • Add the remaining ingredients (except condensed milk) and mix thoroughly.
  • Knead dough on a floured surface until smooth allowing it to rest for 15-20 minutes before rolling out.
  • Roll dough to approximately 1/4 inch thickness.
  • Cut 2 inch rounds (1 inch for bite-size cookies).
  • Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 300 degrees for 20 minutes.
  • Let cool completely.
  • 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)
  • 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.
  • Dulce De Leche:
  • Pour Sweetened Condensed milk into a pie plate and cover with aluminum foil.
  • Place pie plate in larger shallow pan filled with hot water.
  • Bake at 425 for 1 hour or until caramel-colored.

    I LOVE dulce de leche AND shortbread! This is very close to shortbread in Scotland, called "Millionaires Shortbread", except the latter is prepared in a pan, with a layer of chocolate, and cut into squares! Great post!
