1 cup ground Werther's original candies (about 35 candies)
1 can dulce de leche caramel sauce
2 1/2 cups pastry flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 stick of melted butter
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup of brown sugar
Begin by creaming the butter, ground candy and brown sugar until smooth and velvety. Add dulce de leche and beat for a few more minutes, until well combined. Mix flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Slowly add flour mixture until everything is combined. I do this at low speed.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. scoop dough onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. I usually place 9 on a sheet. They will spread quite a bit. Bake for 15 minutes, then remove from oven.
