Dulce De Leche Cookies

Melt-in-your-mouth cookies filled with sweet dulce de leche is just what your sweet tooth needs.


– 10 tablespoons salted butter  – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – ½ cup powdered sugar – 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour – ½ teaspoon salt – ¼ cup dulce de leche

How to Make Dulce De Leche Cookies

Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C (160°C for a fan oven), and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat silicone baking mat. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, with a hand mixer, cream the butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. Add flour and salt, and beat at low speed until a smooth dough forms.

Use a small (1-inch) cookie scoop to drop the cookie dough onto the lined baking sheet, leaving about two inches between each cookie, and slightly flatten each ball of dough with your hand or a class glass.

Using a teaspoon measuring spoon, create a small indention in the center of each cookie.

Using a spoon or a piping bag, fill the indention with dulce de leche. Do not overfill.

Bake cookies for 11-12 minutes or until the bottoms are slightly browned. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
