  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups flour

  • Divide the dough into two portions and roll each piece into a 2-inch-thick log. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 1 1/2 hours.

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line several baking sheets with a non-stick baking mat or parchment paper.

  • Cut log into ¼-inch thick slices and place on baking sheet 1-inch apart. Bake for 10 minutes or until edges start to brown. Remove from oven and transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.

  • Optional – drizzle dulce de leche over the top of cookie sandwiches. Eat immediately or place in freezer until ready to eat.
