Caramel Kissed Chocolate GF Cookies

I had some leftover Dulce de Leche after making my Salted Pistachio Caramel Bars so I decided use it up in some chocolatey gluten free cookies. Our girls are glad I did as the cookies taste terrific and look really cute; they’re a great holiday treat and in my opinion they surprisingly taste even better after being stored a day or two in an airtight container. I adapted this recipe from Gluten Free on a Shoestring Blog.

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 325F.
Prepare the cookie dough
  1. In a large bowl sift together the flour, corn starch and cocoa powder. Add the palm sugar and mix in.
  2. In another bowl mix together the eggs, vanilla and butter.
  3. Add the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients, mix thoroughly and form a dough ball. If it is too sticky add a bit more flour.
  4. Wrap the ball in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for approximately 20 minutes.
  5. Remove from the fridge and roll the dough ball into a long tube (cucumber sized)
  6. Slice the roll into ½” pieces for our cookies.
  7. On a baking pan lined with Kirkland Signature parchment paper, place the cookies and press down with your thumb until you make a indentation (this will be for the caramel). The cookies should be an inch or so apart from one another.
  8. Bake for approximately 9-11 minutes, checking half way through to ensure we still have an indentation. If it has risen, press down with a small spoon again.
  9. Once the cookies are done remove from the oven and allow to cool.
Prepare the caramel filling
  1. Place the Dulce de Leche in a small pot and heat on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.
  2. Once it starts bubbling stir constantly and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Pour the caramel into the cookie indentations.
  4. Allow the caramel to cool.
  5. In a double boiler melt the chocolate chips. Once melted drizzle the chocolate over each cookie and then sprinkle crushed nuts on top.
