Note: Welcome to our third annual Cookie Month! Every weekday in December we're going to be sharing a cookie recipe with all of you, just in time for the holidays. So let's get those ovens preheated and get baking!
In Argentina there are all sorts of variations on the sandwich cookie known as alfajores—jam and mousse filled cookies, ones that come coated in confectioners' sugar, and even a holiday-appropriate version known as alfajor de nieve which is made to look as if it's covered in snow. But our favorite alfajors have got to be these Chocolate-Covered Sandwich Cookies with Dulce de Leche, because, after all, who can resist gooey dulce de leche and bittersweet chocolate? Oh, and that little bit of orange zest that the good folks at Fine Cooking incorporated into this recipe? Pure genius. It's a small touch that complements the chocolate and dulce de leche beautifully.
