Published July 13, 2010 1:01AM (EDT)


  • 2 dozen maicenitas (lemony butter cookies, recipe here)
  • Dulce de leche ice cream (dulce de leche recipe here and dulce de leche ice cream recipe here)
  • Grated coconut, toasted if desired
  • Confectioners' sugar


  1. For each sandwich, you'll need two cookies. Place a tablespoon of dulce de leche ice cream on the bottom of one cookie and smooth it out with the spoon. Top it with the bottom of the second cookie. Press down gently so that some of the ice cream squeezes out on the sides
  2. Roll the sides (the ice cream) in coconut, and then dust the top and bottom in confectioners' sugar.
  3. Freeze until ready to eat.
