I was inspired by Anne talking about shortbread cookies yesterday that I made these about two hours ago.
Alfajores Kisses, shortbread cookies filled with Dulce De Leche inside then baked.
The dough calls for 1 1/2 c cake flour + 1/2 c corn starch. It has honey, vanilla, 1 egg & 1/2 cup powdered sugar.
I am very happy with results and from now on this is on my Christmas to-bake cookie list… The corn starch made the dough stayed in shape although I stick the shaped cookies in the
freezer for 20 mins b4 baking for I was worried that they might spread like crazy, and it helped. The corn starch made the dough airy inside/lighter and crunchy on the outside w/out making the entire cookies
hard like biting into a rock and no after taste. the Dulce De Leche that was “entomb” inside remained creamy. and no I did not make that STARBUCKS snow globe. I got that from SB like 3 years ago at Christmas.
