Description

This cookie has my favourite ingredients, white chocolate, almonds and caramel..need I say more? It is easy and looks so elegant. Kid friendly yet sophisticated enough for Holidays and tea time. My daughter made this cookie and I added the flourish of decorations to it making it a show stopper cookie. Enjoy

Ingredients

  • White Chocolate Almond Dolce De Leche Shortbread Cookies
  • 3/4c ground almonds
  • 3/4c sugar
  • 4 c flour
  • 1 1/2 c butter or margarine
  • 2 tsp each almond extract & vanilla extract
  • 1 grated orange peel
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten with a fork
  • 4 oz white chocolate, melted
  • 4 oz dolce de leche sauce

Instructions

In a small bowl mix almonds and 1/8c sugar and set aside.
In a large bowl combine remaining sugar, flour, shortening, extracts, and peel. Using your hands mix gently together.
If mixture does not come together easily add 1T water at a time to hold together.
Divide dough into 3 equal pieces. Place one ball between 2 pieces of wax paper and roll dough into a 12"x8" rectangle, peeling off the wax paper on both sides regularly to allow dough to roll into shape.
Use your hands or a kitchen ruler to square the dough to desired size.
Place dough on greased baking sheet or parchment/silicone sheet. Brush dough with egg whites and sprinkle with nut/sugar mixture, press gently into dough.
Using a decorative pastry wheel cut strips lengthwise and crosswise creating 2"x3" rectangles.
Strips do not need to be separated. Bake for 15-20 only until lightly browned.
Melt white chocolate in microwave for 1min. Stir to melt. Soften Dolce de Leche in microwave 30sec.
Drizzle chocolate over cookies and dolce de leche.
Enjoy!
