Chocolate-Covered Dulce De Leche AlfajoresMADE BY BUENOS ANGIE'S IN DEER PARK, NEW YORK
When these gorgeous, buttery, gooey sandwich cookies came across our tasting table, there was no debate: they were a must-carry. Made in the style of traditional Argentine alfajores, they are handmade in Long Island by Angie herself, and are as good as (dare we say better than?) the best Argentina has to offer.
Just-cakey-enough, rich butter cookies plus a slather of just-sweet-enough caramel equals one killer treat. And when you dip it in chocolate?!! We've died and gone to cookie heaven.

The cookie version of an It's-It ice cream sandwich. (Bonus foodie points if you know what an "It's-It" is without Googling it.)
