instructions Preheat oven to 350F.
ingredients 1/2 cup Sugar
1 cup Unsalted Butter (softened)
instructions Cream the butter and sugar in an electric stand mixer with the paddle attachment at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes.
ingredients 1 egg
instructions Add egg and continue to mix.
ingredients 2 cup Flour
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
instructions In another bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking powder.
ingredients 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 tablespoon Milk
instructions Add the vanilla extract to the creamed mixture and reduce speed to low and add the flour mixture. Add the milk very slowly, adding just enough to make the dough come together into a ball. It should not be sticky.
instructions On a very lightly floured work surface, turn out the dough. Split in half and wrap in parchment paper, then freeze in the freezer for an hour.
instructions Remove dough from freezer and set aside. Roll out dough onto a piece of lightly flour parchment, and roll out the dough into a 1/4-inch thickness. Using a cookie cutter, cut into 1 1/2" rounds. Using the bottom of a piping tip, punch out a center hole. Gather scraps and repeat process to make more cookies. If dough is too sticky, return to freezer.
instructions Arrange the cookies on a cookie sheet covered with a sheet of parchment. Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes, or until the bottoms are lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool.
ingredients 3 cup Shredded Coconut
1 14 ounce can Dulce de Leche
3 tablespoon Milk
1/4 teaspoon Salt
instructions Reduce heat to 325F. While they cool, toast the coconut on another cookie sheet for about 10 minutes. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the dulce de leche, milk and salt. Microwave on high for 3 minutes stirring to combine every minute. Cook an additional minute if necessary to create a smooth consistency. Add the coconut and mix until thoroughly incorporated. Microwave for 30 seconds if necessary to keep a spreadable consistency.
instructions Spread a scant 3 teaspoons of the coconut mixture on each of the cookies. You may need to microwave the mixture again during the process to keep soft.
ingredients 8 ounce Dark Chocolate
instructions In a double boiler or microwave, melt the chocolate. Dip the bottom of each of the cookies in the chocolate. Drizzle additional chocolate over each of the cookies.
instructions Transfer cookies to refrigerator until set, about 30 to 45 minutes.
