Almond Cookies with Dulce De Leche Filling

The Beijing Olympic starts today and Carlos and I will be gluing ourselves to the TV. What a better way to spend the evening in front of the TV on our brand new sofa with these delectable little cookies with a cup of tea or milk. Since Carlos love Dulce De Leche I am sure he is going to enjoy this.

Ingredients :

2 cups flour + 1/2 tsp of salt - sifted
3/4 cup toasted and ground
1 stick or 1/2 cup - at room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
Some Dulce De Leche or any kind of jam.

1. Mix the flour and ground almonds.
2. Cream the butter with the sugar. Add the egg and mix until incorporated. Mix in the flour and almond mixture.
3. Chill for about 30 minutes or until firm enough to roll out.
4. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F and grease 2 baking sheets or line with parchement paper.
5. Roll out the dough to about 1/8" thickness and cut out design with cookie cutter. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the edges started to get brown.
6. Allow to cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely before sandwiching it with dulce de leche or jam.

Kath, thank you. I did watch the opening ceremony and it was spectacular!!

Cat, wish you guys are nearer to me. I can share it with your family :) I bought the coffe cup set from TJ Max.

Kath, Dulce De Leche is a caramel made from milk and sugar. Very popular with the Latin America. I will bring a can for you to try when I go home for CNY :)

Lesley, Dulce De Leche is too sweet for my taste but Carlos likes it. I am sure Eliot will enjoy it too. You can find it at those Latin stores or certain supermarket.

Yatie, this cookies is light and melts in your mouth because of the Almond.

Jescel, thank you so much for the award.
