Dulce De Leche Duos

Sandwich cookies are a way to eat two cookies when you’d normally only allow yourself one. So there’s that.

These cookies are so good you might want to just eat them as you sandwich them. I won’t judge you for that.


I made half of the recipe below, so I ended up with about 15 duos. Did you know that half of 3/4 a cup is 6 tablespoons or a heaping 1/3 of a cup? I bet you knew. You’re one smart sandwich cookie.


Dulce De Leche Duos {makes about 30 duos}
Recipe from Dorie Greenspan


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 2 sticks (8 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup store-bought dulce de leche, plus more for filling
  • 3/4 cup (packed) brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Postion the rack in the center of the oven. Line a baking sheet or two with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl using an electric hand mixer or using a stand mixer beat the butter at a medium speed until soft and fluffy. Add the 3/4 cup dulce de leche and both sugars and continue to beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, beating for 1 minute after each addition. Reduce the mixer to low and add the dry ingredients, mixing only until they disappear into the batter.
  4. Spoon the dough onto the baking sheets, using a heaping teaspoon or cookie scoop leaving 2 inches in between. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through bake time. The cookies will be honey brown and super soft. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for a minute or two before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Continue with the rest of the dough until all the cookies are baked. When the cookies are completely cool, spread the flat bottoms of half the cookies with a small amount of dulce de leche and sandwich with the flat sides of the remaining cookies.


Just ignore my wrinkly shirt and look for this can of hopes and dreams at the store.
