In stand mixer with paddle attachment, or in bowl using wooden spoon, beat together butter, icing sugar, vanilla and salt until light and fluffy; stir in flour and cocoa powder just until combined. Shape dough into 2 discs. Wrap each in plastic wrap; refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. 

Between waxed or parchment paper, roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness; using 2-inch round cookie cutter, cut out shapes, rerolling scraps as necessary. Arrange, 1 inch apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheets; refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. 

Bake in 300°F oven, 1 sheet at a time, until firm, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool completely on pans.

Filling: In small bowl, combine dulce de leche with cocoa powder. On flat side of half of cookies, spoon or pipe rounded 1 tsp of the filling onto each; sandwich with remaining cookies, flat sides down, lightly pressing to push filling to edge. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes; bring to room temperature before serving. 

Makes about 20 sandwich cookies.
