- 16 oz dulce de leche
- 1/2 cup roasted crushed walnuts
- 1/2 cup cookie crumbs
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 drop pink food coloring
- 1 drop green food coloring
- 2 cups milk
- Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the butter, eggs, sugar, and vanilla together. Next, add the flour and baking powder until well-combined.
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Next, form small, round balls out of the dough (about the size of a walnut).
- Arrange the dough balls on the baking sheet about an inch apart. Bake for about 15-20 minutes (you'll want to pull them out of the oven while they're still white, not golden brown).
- Using a knife, cut out a small hole in the center of each cookie.
- To make the filling, combine the dulce de leche with the cookie crumbs and crushed walnuts.
- Fill in each hole with the dulce de leche filling. Press two cookies together to form a peach shape.
- Fill two medium-sized bowls with a cup of milk. Dye one bowl of milk pink using pink food coloring. In the other bowl, combine pink food coloring and green food coloring to create a peach color.
- Dip one side of the cookie into the pink milk and the other side into the peach milk. Dunk the cookie into a bowl full of sugar and place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat until you have no more cookies left. Allow the cookies to set at room temperature overnight.
- Decorate the cookies with small leaves. Serve and enjoy!
