DIRECTIONS

  • Beat the butter until creamy. Add the sugar gradually, beating until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla and lemon rind.
  • Sift together the cornstarch, flour, baking powder and soda. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, beating until thoroughly combined.
  • Drop the batter by small spoonfuls onto well buttered baking sheets. Leave enough space between the cookies because they will spread.
  • Bake in a 350 degrees oven 15 minutes. Immediately remove from the baking sheets and let cool.
  • When cool, spread some Dulce de leche on the bottom half of the cookies and make a sandwich with the remaining cookies. Squeeze the sandwiches so that some of the dulce de leche is squeezed out the sides, and roll the sides in the grated coconut.
