Salted Dulce De Leche Cookies


These were good, everyone seemed to like them, but they were not great.  My grandmother who is picky said she enjoyed them so that is always a plus.  I dont think I would make these again just because they were slightly messy and time consuming.


½ cup unsalted butter (softened)

¼ cup packed brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 egg yolk room temp

1 and ¼ cups all purpose flour

1/8 tsp salt

¼ cup dulce de leche (I used more which may be why mine were so messy but without the extra I feel like they would have been VERY dry.)

2 tbsp sea salt


In a large mixing bowl beat together the butter and the brown sugar.

Beat in the vanilla and egg yolk next.

In a separate bowl combine the flour and the salt.

Stir!

Gradually stir the flour into the butter and mix until blended well.

Shape the dough into a ball, cover and chill for one hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Shape the dough into balls and place them 2 inches apart on the greased baking sheet.

Using your thumb or a spoon press an indention into the center of each ball.

If the edges crack just pinch them back together.

Fill the indents with ¼ tsp of dulce de leche.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges are light brown.

Cool the cookies on the pan for 5 minutes.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Sprinkle the tops with sea salt.
