Sugar Mixture

1/3 cup sugar

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom


3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt


1/4 cup canned dulce de leche

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine all sugar mixture ingredients in shallow dish; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Beat brown sugar and butter in medium bowl at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and vanilla, beating until well mixed. Add all remaining cookie ingredients; beat at low speed until well mixed. Set aside 1/4 cup dough. Cover remaining dough; refrigerate 30 minutes.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

  4. STEP 4

    Shape chilled dough into 24 balls; place 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets. Make 1/2-inch indentation in center of each cookie with back of measuring spoon or handle of wooden spoon.

  5. STEP 5

    Place dulce de leche in resealable plastic food bag; snip off small corner of bag. Squeeze dulce de leche into each indentation until level with top of cookie.

  6. STEP 6

    Divide reserved 1/4 cup dough into 24 pieces. Cover dulce de leche on each cookie with piece of dough, smoothing to seal.

  7. STEP 7

    Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let stand on cookie sheet 1 minute. Remove to cooling rack; let cool 5 minutes. Dip warm cookies into sugar mixture.

Tip #1

- Dip handle of wooden spoon in flour, if necessary to prevent sticking when making indentations.

Tip #2

- Dulce de leche can be found in the Hispanic section of the supermarket or near sweetened condensed milk in the baking aisle.
