Instructions

    Cream Cheese Cookies

    1. For the cookies, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. In the bowl of your stand mixer, cream butter and cream cheese together. Add vanilla and combine.
    2. In a separate bowl, combine Flour, powdered sugar, cornstarch and salt. Add to butter mixture. Mix to combine.
    3. Using a teaspoon, form cookie dough into round balls and flatten slightly. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 Minutes. Cool completely before tossing in powdered sugar.

    Dulce de Leche

    1. In a saucepan, combine milk, sugar, baking soda and vanilla bean (split with seeds scraped out and added to the mix). Cook over medium-low heat until mixture comes to a boil.
    2. Reduce the heat, and stirring occasionally, cook for 2-3 hours until mixture had reduced to almost 1 cup. Remove from heat and cool completely. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.
    3. To assemble, place Dulce de Leche in a small piping bag (a Ziploc bag works too) and place a small amount on one cookie, sandwich with another. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
