Carmelita Cookies

These were my favorite new cookies in the basket. These were inspired by a visit to Porto’s in L.A. where I tried their “kiss” cookies. A delicious shortbread wrapped around dulce de leche. While not exactly the same, I put a holiday spin by wrapping snickerdoodles around dulce de leche. Enjoy! 20131214-104540.jpg

1 cup soft butter

1 ½ cup sugar

2 eggs

2 ¾ cups plain flour

1tsp soda

½ tsp salt

1 cup dulce de leche

2 tbsp sugar

2tbsp cinnamon

Preheat oven 400 degrees. Mix butter, sugar, eggs. Sift flour, soda, and salt. Stir in. Roll into quarter size balls. Cut balls in half. Form cupped shaped and pipe in a dollop of dulce de leche. Place top dough on top and press edges together. Roll lightly to form ball shape again. Mix sugar and cinnamon and roll balls in mixture. Place two inches apart. Bake 10 minutes on ungreased cookie sheet.
