Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups butter softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups finely chopped toasted pecans
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut toasted
  • 1/2 cup dulce de leche

Method

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.
