Ingredients

  • 3/4

    cup(175 mL) (175 mL) butter, softened

  • 1/4

    cup (50 mL) granulated sugar

  • 1/4

    cup (50 mL) packed dark brown sugar

  • 1

    egg yolk

  • 1

    tsp(5 mL) vanilla

  • 1

    pinch salt

  • 2

    cups(500 mL) all-purpose flour

  • 3/4

    cup (175 mL) finely chopped toasted pecans

  • 1/4

    cup (50 mL) unsweetened desiccated coconut, toasted

  • 1/2

    cup (125 mL) dulce de leche

Directions

In large bowl, beat together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until fluffy; beat in egg yolk, vanilla and salt. In separate bowl, stir together flour, 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the pecans and coconut; stir into butter mixture in 2 additions to make smooth dough. Divide dough in half; form each into 1-1/2-inch (4 cm) wide log. Roll each in remaining pecans, pressing to adhere. Wrap each and refrigerate for 1 hour or for up to 24 hours. Cut logs into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices. Arrange, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheets. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until golden, about 10 minutes. Transfer to rack; let cool completely. Spread bottoms of half of the cookies with about 1/2 tsp (2 mL) dulce de leche each. Top with remaining cookies to make sandwiches.
