Dulce de Leche Sandwich Cookies

As promised, today's post begins a week long treat of sweet recipes from Alex's party. I thought the best place to start would be the Dulce de Leche Sandwich Cookies because, as you can see, there are only two left. This creative spin on a cookie comes from Annie's Eats and was a big hit! The recipe is below.

Dulce de Leche Sandwich Cookies
-1¼ cups all-purpose flour
-½ tsp. baking soda
-Pinch of salt
-I stick unsalted butter, room temperature
-6 T. dulce de leche, plus more for filling (1 can)
-6 T. light brown sugar, packed
-¼ cup sugar
-1 large egg

Preheat the oven to 350˚ F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir with a fork to blend.
In a separate bowl, beat the butter on medium-high speed until soft and smooth. Mix in the 6 tablespoons dulce de leche, and both the brown and white sugars. Beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. With the mixer on low speed, mix in the dry ingredients just until incorporated.
Spoon the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, using a heaping teaspoon of dough for each cookie and leaving 2 inches between them. Bake for 10-12 minutes, rotating the pans from top to bottom and front to back halfway through baking time. The cookies should be a golden honey brown with a light crust, but they will still be soft.
Remove the cookies from the oven and let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for a few minutes. Using a metal spatula, carefully transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with the remaining dough.Once the cookies are completely cool, pair them up by size. Spread the flat side of one cookie from each pair with a small amount of dulce de leche, and top with the other cookie. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
