Argentine Desserts


Argentine Chocolate-Dulce de Leche Frosting
Courtesy of KayD (

This is really good, but a little slippery. It goes very well with a white or pound cake.

1 can dulce de leche (about 400g)
11 tbsp. butter
5 oz. semi-sweet chocolate

Cook 1/2 of dulce de leche and the chocolate in a double boiler. Once it melts add butter and the rest of the dulce the leche. Cook until well blended.

These are little corn starch cookies. Spread dulce de leche in one side of a cookie, and sandwich with another. Roll the sides of the cookie-sandwich on grated coconut.

2 1/2 Cups Corn Starch
1 2/3 Cups Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
2 Tsp. Baking Powder
3/4 Cups Sugar
200g Margarine
3 Yolks
1 Tbs Cognac
1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
Powdered Lemon Peel

Sift corn starch with flour, baking soda and powder in a bowl. Beat margarine and sugar, add yolks one by one, mix well. Add cognac and dry ingredients, a little at the time. Add vanilla extract and lemon peel, mix and form a paste without using rolling pin. Stretch to 1/2 cm. width over surface with four. Cut and put on a pan without butter. Cook at 350 degrees, about 15 minutes
