    • Cornstarch: 2 cups + 1 tbsp
    • Powdered Sugar: 1 ⅓ cups
    • Baking Powder: 2 tsp
    • Egg Yolks: 4

  • Filling:
    • Dulce de Leche: 27 tsp
  • Optional: Shredded Coconut for dipping


  1. Dough Preparation: Cream together butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, salt, and egg yolks. Add cornstarch, flour, and baking powder, mixing to form a dough. Divide, wrap, and chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
  2. Rolling and Cutting: Roll out chilled dough between parchment papers to ¼ inch thick. Cut into circles and transfer to a lined baking sheet.
  3. Baking: Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C (350°F) for 10-12 minutes until pale but set. Cool to room temperature.
  4. Filling: Pipe or spoon about 1 teaspoon of dulce de leche onto half the cookies. Sandwich with remaining cookies. Optionally, dip edges in shredded coconut.
  5. Notes: Use room temperature ingredients for a smooth dough. Avoid overmixing to keep cookies tender. Measure flour correctly for the right consistency. Chill dough to prevent spreading. Allow cookies to cool before filling with dulce de leche.
