Wow! I can't belive the third Pintester Movement is here! I really wanted to test a pin solely for the purpose of the Pintester Movement, but I time flew by, until I made an executive decision to post about cookies I made from Joy the Baker.
These cookies are amazing. You would expect that the dulce de leche and the sweetness of the cookies would create an overdose of sugar, but it all evens out. The recipes is easy, but it makes about sixty cookies or thirty sandwiches, or about five batches of twelve.
- 2 and 1/2 cups (310 grams) flour
- 1 teaspoon (8 grams) baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon (2 grams) salt
- 1 cup (225 grams) butter, room temperature
- 3/4 cup dulce de leche, plus more for filling
- 3/4 cup (165 grams) light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup (100 grams) white sugar
- 2 eggs
- Preheat ove to 350°F or 175°C. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.
- In a stand mixer, beat the butter at medium speed until softned and broken up a bit. Add the dulce de leche, brown sugar and white sugar. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and beat to blend completely. You may need a spatula to finish the mixing.
- Spoon the dough onto the baking sheets using a teaspoon of dough for each cookie. I used a mechanical ice cream scooper, but I had to remove some of the dough, so there wasn't too much. Leave about 2 inches (5 cm) of space between cookies because they spread.
- Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. The cookies will be honey brown, but very soft when they come out. let the cool on the cookies sheet for a few minutes, then place them on a cooling rack to cool.
- When done baking, or when the cookies are cooled completely, spread with dulce de leche or melt dulce de leche so when cooled it will be shinnier.
- Store for up to four days.
P.S. The cookies taste great by themselves, making sandwiches is optional.
