Ingredients

Dulce de leche

  • 1 400 g can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 30 g butter

Sesame seed biscuits

  • 2 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 200 g butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extra
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds

Instructions

Dulce de leche

  • Combine ingredients in a medium heavy based saucepan. Bring to boil.
  • Once mixture has come to the boil, reduce temperature and simmer for around 10 minutes or until mixture is thickened.
  • Allow to cool while you get on with making the biscuits.

Sesame seed biscuits

  • Put flour, sugar, butter, vanilla and cinnamon into the food processor and process for 1 minute.
  • Add yolk and pulse until just combined.
  • Tip mixture onto greaseproof paper or glad wrap and roll into a sausage round 4cm in diameter. Wrap in glad wrap and chill in fridge until solid.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Line baking sheet with baking paper.
  • Cut dough into 3-4mm discs (thinner than in my above photo, to achieve a better biscuit to dulce de leche ratio!)
  • Pour sesame seeds onto a plate and press one side of each biscuit into the sesame seeds.
  • Place biscuits on baking sheet and bake for 10 mins or until lightly golden.
  • Once completely cool, spread half the biscuits with dulce de leche and gently sandwich the biscuits together.
