This simple little cookie is an Argentine obsession. Generally two shortbread cookies sandwiched with creamy dulce de leche (a thick milk custard served one everything from ice cream to breakfast pastries) -- although other flavors exist. They come covered with chocolate or meringue, packed in boxes or as single servings. The most famous brand is from the chain of Havanna stores but every cafe offers a version and finds plenty of takers. I brought a box home for James.
