Re:Chocolate-Covered Sandwich Cookies with Dulce de Leche (Alfajores)

Sorry Andy, these were a disaster for me. I found the cookie very dry and all I could taste was the flour and a touch of orange zest. The cookies baked very unevenly, more oval shaped than round, and some puffed up significantly more than others. I've made dulce de leche before and that turned out fine. The chocolate was way too thick and it was impossible to dip the cookie and get an even coating without making a total mess. I ended up just dipping half the cookie in an attempt to salvage the cookies. Didn't care for the overall taste, expense and time for this poor result.
