Dulce de Leche Duos

These delicious cookies were selected from the same book used in Tuesdays with Dorie, but the recipe has not yet been selected. I know that it will be eventually, so I went ahead and made them in advance (I had leftover dulce de leche from the Snickery Squares). I decided to share them now because of how wonderfully they turned out. This is one of the recipes I will absolutely repeat in the future.

The showcased cookies are made as per Dorie's instructions - with a bit of dulce de leche sandwiched between the cookies. These may be the best cookies I've yet made from Dorie's list. The caramely and gooey mixture makes these nearly sacrosanct sweets simply superb. I ran out of dulce de leche after making a few of the sandwiches, and served the remainder of the cookies by themselves. These were still delicious in a very pure way, with the light touch of dulce de leche. They aren't over-sweet, but at the same time, they don't lack.

Garrett, HI I couldn't find a way to email you on your home page, so quick ? About to make these for a party and just thought I would ask for any tips you may have in your memory bank. I know its summer but they really sound delicious. Too rich for summer?
