Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • 2 In large bowl, stir cookie mix, 1/2 cup of the coconut, the pecans, butter and egg until stiff dough forms.
  • 3 On floured surface, roll half of dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 2-inch round or fluted cookie cutter. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining half of dough.
  • 4 Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until set. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.
  • 5 To make each sandwich cookie, spread about 2 teaspoons dulce de leche on bottom of 1 cookie. Top with second cookie, bottom side down; gently press cookies together so some of filling seeps out around edges. Roll edges in remaining 1/2 cup coconut. Place cookies on cooling rack.
  • 6 Sprinkle tops of sandwich cookies with powdered sugar. Store between sheets of waxed paper in tightly covered container.

Look for cans of dulce de leche in the Hispanic-foods section at your supermarket. Dulce de leche is similar to sweetened condensed milk, but it has been caramelized and is much thicker.

Dulce [DOOL-say] is Spanish for and generally refers to an intensely sweet confection made with sugar and cream. Leche [LAY-chay] is the Spanish word for “milk.”
