Alfajores (Dulce de Leche Sandwich Crème Cookies)
alfajores (dulce de leche sandwich crème cookies)
1 pouch Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup pecan halves, toasted, finely chopped
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 can(300 mL) dulce de leche (caramelized sweetened condensed milk)
2 tablespoons icing sugar
Heat oven to 375°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In large bowl, stir cookie mix, 1/2 cup of the coconut, the pecans, butter and egg until stiff dough forms.
On floured surface, roll half of dough until 1/4 inch thick. Cut with 2-inch round or fluted cookie cutter. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Repeat with remaining half of dough.
Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until set. Cool 2 minutes; remove from baking sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely.
To make each sandwich cookie, spread about 2 teaspoons dulce de leche on bottom of each cookie. Press 2 cookies together so some of filling seeps out around edges. Roll edges in remaining 1/2 cup coconut. Place cookies on cooling rack.
Sprinkle tops of sandwich cookies with icing sugar. Store between sheets of waxed paper in tightly covered container.
Success Hint. Dulce de leche is similar to sweetened condensed milk, but it has been caramelized and is much thicker.
