Dulce de leche Sandwiches

Preparation Time
40 minutes Total Time

1 cup all-purpose flour
1⅔ cups cornflour
1 tsp baking powder
¾ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
10 tbsp butter, softened
½ cup sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
4 large egg yolks
450g caramel sauce or
about 1 cup slow-cooker
dulce de leche (see
recipe, right)

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Into a large bowl, sift the flour, cornflour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. With mixer on a medium-high speed, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in vanilla, then egg yolks, 1 at a time. With mixer on low, beat in flour mixture until just combined, stopping and scraping down the sides of the bowl occasionally.

2. On a lightly floured surface, roll half the dough to 0,5cm thick with a lightly floured rolling pin. With a 4cm round cutter, cut out rounds. With a small knife or mini offset spatula, transfer rounds to a large baking tray lined with baking paper, spacing 2,5cm apart. Reroll scraps once. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown underneath.

3. Let cookies cool on baking tray for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat rolling, cutting and baking with remaining dough.

4. To assemble, place caramel sauce in a piping bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe onto half the cookies. Top with the remaining cookies. Sandwiches can be stored in airtight containers in the freezer for up to 1 month. Makes about 3 dozen.

Slow-cooker Dulce de Leche

Transfer 1 can (385g) sweetened condensed milk to one 1-cup preserving jar or three ⅓-cup jars. Stir in ⅛ tsp salt, seal tightly with the lid and place in a slowcooker bowl. (If using a larger jar, lay down sideways.) Cover with water. Place lid on slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours. Carefully remove jar from water and wipe dry. Let it cool, then place it in the fridge for 1 hour before opening. Makes about 1 cup.RECIPE VARIATIONS Hazelnut-cocoa: In step 4, spread half the cookies with 1 tsp each hazelnut-cocoa spread instead of dulce de leche. Fiesta Alfajores: After sandwiching, spread dulce de leche all over the sides of cookies with a small knife. Roll in your choice of sprinkles, flaked coconut or chopped nuts.
