Dulce de Leche Sugar Cookies

Hi all! December is here and surely I just LOVE December, I LOVE Christmas and the smell of the pine Christmas tree, Love the cookie baking, the gift giving and most important the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ!!

Cookie baking has become an obsession for me! When I see all the different, wonderful, artistic and colorful decorated cookies posted all over facebook, I just drool over them. Oh gosh, most of them I cant even dream of trying to make them :( These ladies are soooo talented! During all that cookie obsession I have now I try new recipes and here is one I just love and came out perfect the first time I tried it. Please try it out and let me know what you think!

Dulce de Leche sugar cut out cookies  

2 sticks of butter
1 c of sugar 
1 egg
1 tsp Butter Vanilla emulsion 
1/4 c of Dulce de Leche ( I used homemade)
3 1/2 c of All Purpose Flour
2 tsp baking powder

Cream Butter and Sugar until change of color, add in the Dulce de Leche and mix well. Add egg and beat until combined. Now add in the emulsion and mix. Slowly mix in the flour and B. powder until cant see the flour. If the mixture is too soft just add a little more. Remove and make a ball with it and wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1hr. When its cold roll and cut as desired. bake at 350 for 8-10 or til edges are golden. Let cool well and decorate has desired with Royal Icing. 

These are my naked Dulce de Leche sugar cookies

Hope you can enjoy this recipe which I consider very tasty infact to me it tasted like shortbread but with a little more consistency and less fragile.

If you have any questions or doubt, just leave your questions or comments, I would Loooove to here them. 

Love, Victoria!
