  • 1 cup (250 ml) unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) baking powder
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (250 ml) dulce de leche (milk caramel spread)
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) dried grated coconut
  • Preparation
  • In a bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Add the egg yolk and vanilla and beat until smooth. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the dry ingredients. Shape the dough into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  • With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • On a floured surface, roll the dough to a thickness of about 3 mm (1/8 inch). Using a 6-cm (2 1/2-inch) round cookie cutter, cut out 18 cookies. Using a thin spatula, lift each cookie onto the baking sheet.
  • Bake until the cookies begin to colour, about 12 minutes. Let cool completely on the cookie sheet before handling.
