Found these while playing on the Internet and decided to give them a try soon. For the dulce de leche, you can either make your own (many good recipes on this site) or find it in a local market that has a good selection of Latin American products.

These were amazing! At first they were really hard, like crackers, but after I added the dulce de leche and let them sit for a while they were wonderfully soft and chewy. They had a very unique taste and were pretty easy to make. I think the baking time was a little too long, though. The ones I left in for 15 were a little burnt and the ones I kept in for 10-12 were much better.

- Cream butter for a minute, add sugar and beat until fluffy.

- In a separate bowl, sift together cornstarch, flour, baking powder and salt. Add to mixture and mix well.
- Drop batter by small spoonfuls onto well buttered baking sheet. Try to keep your cookie size uniform as it will make building sandwiches easier.
