dulce de leche and cinnamon sandwich cookies

Cinnamon is the star ingredient in these dulce de leche and cinnamon sandwich cookies. It makes them warm, especially in cold weather like today… These cookies are sweet, soft, fragrant and filled with a silky rich dulce de leche.

Yield: 20 cookies.

Ingredients for the cookies:

  • 230 g butter
  • 170 g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 240 g plain flour
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate soda
  • a pinch of salt
  • ½ tsp ground anise seed or cardamom
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon

All ingredients should be at room temperature.

In a mixing bowl, beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until very light and fluffy. Add the egg and beat until well combined. Add plain flour, bicarbonate soda, salt, anise seed/cardamom and cinnamon into the mixing bowl and mix.

Line two baking trays with baking paper. Scoop out the cookie dough two teaspoons at a time, roll it into balls (about 20 g per cookie), and place them on the baking trays, leaving enough space between each cookie to spread.

Bake at 175°C for about 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Let cookies cool on the sheet for a few minutes, and then gently place each warm cookie in the cinnamon sugar to coat evenly. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 400 – 600 g dulce de leche

Combine cinnamon and caster sugar in a bowl.

Pipe or spread 1 1/2 teaspoons of the dulce de leche filling over the bottom half of the cookie, then sandwich with the remaining cookie.
