INSTRUCTIONS


For The Cookie Dough

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, allspice, cinnamon, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt until evenly combined. Set aside.

  2. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the light brown sugar and granulated sugar. Pour in the melted butter and whisk into the sugar. Finally, whisk in the egg yolk, egg and vanilla extract until smooth and evenly combined.

For The Cinnamon Sugar

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar and cinnamon until evenly combined. Set aside.


For The Dulce de Leche Sauce

  1. Remove the label from the can. Place it in a saucepan, taller than the can, and cover with water by 1-2-inches.

  2. Bring to a boil over medium-high, reduce the heat to a simmer, and cook for 3 hours. Carefully remove the can, open it, and pour into a small bowl. Whisk together to evenly combine and if needed, pass through a fine mesh strainer for an even smoother consistency.

  3. Let cool completely at room temperature, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.


For The Toasted Milk Cream Frosting

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the milk powder, and cook, stirring constantly, until the powder is starting to toast and turn golden brown. Stir in the milk and bring to a simmer. Once hot and steaming, cut off the heat, and steep the mixture for 10 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a separate container and cool completely.

  2. Add the butter to a large mixing bowl, and beat with a hand mixer until smooth, lightened in color and fluffy. Turn the mixer off and add a third of the powdered sugar. Mix on low until fully incorporated and then add more sugar, in batches, until everything is evenly combined.

  3. Stir in the vanilla and 2-3 teaspoons of the cooled toasted milk mixture until the frosting is smooth and velvety in consistency. Place in a pastry bag fitted with a star tip and reserve at room temperature.


To Bake and Assemble

  3. Next, flatten the cookies to about 1/2-inch thick, with the palm of your hand or the bottom of a glass.

  4. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until golden brown around the edges and not quite set in the middle. Let cool on a wire rack at room temperature.

  5. When ready to serve, add a heaping tablespoon of the dulce de leche to one of the cooled cookies and spread it in a circle on top.

  6. Pip a nice dot of the toasted milk frosting on top and garnish with freshly ground nutmeg, if you would like. Repeat with the rest of your cookies.

Berry Cobbler Cookie

  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar

  • 1 1/4 cup (285g) melted unsalted butter

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 ½ - 2 1/2 cups (250-500g) granulated sugar, depending on how sweet your berries are

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons (23g) lemon juice

  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup (100g) light brown sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon (2g) ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon (2g) fine sea salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon (2g) ground nutmeg

  • 6 1/2 tablespoons (91g) melted unsalted butter


Cream Cheese Frosting

  • ⅔ cup (150g) salted butter, softened

  • 8 ounces (226g) cream cheese, softened

  • 3 1/2 cups (415g) powdered sugar

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (8g) vanilla bean paste or extract

  • Whole milk, as needed


INSTRUCTIONS

For The Cookie Dough

  1. Place the rolled oats in a food processor and pulse until it becomes a fine powder with tiny pieces throughout.

  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, ground oats, cornstarch, salt and baking soda until evenly combined. Set aside.

  3. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the light brown sugar and granulated sugar. Pour in the melted butter and whisk into the sugar. Finally, whisk in the egg yolk, egg and vanilla extract until smooth and evenly combined.

  4. To your sugar mixture, add half the flour mixture and mix until combined. Then add the remaining flour, and mix until you get a smooth dough and no longer see any raw flour.

  5. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.


For The Raspberry Jam

  1. In a saucepan, stir together the raspberries and sugar. Let macerate for 10 minutes.

  2. Stir in the lemon juice and then set over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, while stirring and mashing the berries.

  3. Boil for 8-10 minutes or until thickened. You can test the consistency of the jam, starting around the 5 minute mark, by placing a small amount of sauce on a plate to quickly cool. The jam is done when it is thick enough to not run on the plate and nicely coats the back of your spoon.

  4. Remove from heat and pass through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Let cool completely at room temperature before refrigerating.


For The Cinnamon Streusel Topping

  1. Preheat the oven to 350℉ / 177℃. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, sugars, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg.

  3. While constantly stirring the flour mixture with a fork, drizzle in the melted butter. This will help create a clumpy texture for the streusel. Stop mixing once all the butter is incorporated and there is no more raw flour.

  4. Spread the streusel on the prepared sheet pan and bake until crispy and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Remove and cool completely.


For The Cream Cheese Frosting

  1. Add the butter to a large mixing bowl, and beat with a hand mixer until smooth, lightened in color and fluffy. Add in the cream cheese and mix until evenly incorporated.

  2. Turn the mixer off and add a third of the powdered sugar. Mix on low until combined and then add more sugar, in batches, until smooth and homogenous.

  3. Stir in the vanilla and 2-3 teaspoons of milk, as needed, until the frosting is smooth and holds stiff peaks.

  4. Place in a pastry bag fitted with a round tip and set aside.


To Bake and Assemble

  1. Keep the oven at the same temperature as the streusel, 350℉ / 177℃. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper.

  2. Scoop 2 ½ tablespoons of dough, per cookie, and roll into a ball. Place on the prepared sheet pan, about 2-inches apart and only adding about 6 cookies per sheet pan. Repeat with the remaining dough.

  3. Next, flatten the cookies to about 1/2-inch thick, with the palm of your hand or the bottom of a glass.

  4. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until golden brown around the edges and not quite set in the middle. Let cool on a wire rack at room temperature.

  5. When ready to assemble, add a swirl of your cream cheese frosting on top of one of your cookies, leaving a bit of space in between each ring. Repeat on the remaining cookies.

  6. Add the cooled raspberry jam to a piping bag and cut just the tip off the bag to make a small hole. Pipe the raspberry jam in the space left between the frosting rings.

  7. Finish by sprinkling some crumble across the top. Repeat with the remaining cookies and serve.
