Dulce de Leche Duos


This cookie recipe was chosen by Jodie of Beansy Loves Cake for this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie .  It is on page 161 of Dorie Greenspan’s book  Baking: From My Home to Yours.  I wasn’t going to participate in this month’s Tuesdays with Dorie because of school but I couldn’t resist making that Dulce de Leche.  And after making a can of it, making the cookies just made sense.  Yummmm!

I removed the sugar from the original recipe to make my version of these cookies.  And it is probably why they are not flat.  I rolled them into balls before baking and this is how they looked like when they came out.  Still delicious!

Dulce de Leche Duos


  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup dulce de leche (recipe below)


  1. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl.  Set aside.
  2. In an electric mixer using a paddle, beat butter until creamy.  Add half of the  dulce de leche and continue beating until smooth. Add the dry ingredients and process until just combined.
  3. Preheat oven to 350F.
  4. Place teaspoonful of batter onto parchment-lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart.  Bake for 10 – 12 minutes. Cool in a rack.
  5. When cooled, spread some dulce de leche onto the flat surface of two cookies (or one) and press together like a sandwich.


Dulce de Leche

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk, remove  paper label if you want

Fill a large pot with water.  Place can of condensed milk inside the pot, making sure the water is at least 2 inches above the top of the can. Cover and boil the water on high for 5 minutes and then lower the heat to simmer and continue cooking for 2 hours.  Let the can cool in the pot before removing.  Can must be cool before opening.

Your little cookies are so fat.

Mine are flatter than a pancake.

LOL..I know. They are so fat I had to put much more dulce de leche so I can taste it…LOL!!! Or maybe that is just my excuse to snack on those creamy dulces without the cookies…:)

I left some of the sugar out too, and my cookies came out really fat and cakey. Glad you liked them! I ended up making sablees to fill with more dulce de leche.

Oooh I love how fat and plump your cookies turned out. So you omitted both the granulated and brown sugar, yes? I might have to give that adaption a go next time!

Your cookies look great! I haven’t made these, but am going to try to fit them in tomorrow. I may use your cookie recipe as I like the look of “fat” cookies rather than flat ones. :)

The cookies look delicious but I want to grab that can of dulce de leche and spoon it all up!

I should try these cookies as I have in my pantry several cans of dulce de leche (I make 4-5 cans per batch using pressure cooker with water up 3/4 of the cans, pressure cooked for 1 hr). I love having them in stock because my kids like them too. (oh, and we like them as palaman in pandesal together with butter…yum!)
