5. Chocolate Coconut Alfajores
A Latin American holiday favorite, alfajores feature a thick layer of dulce de leche sandwiched between two crumbly butter cookies sprinkled with coconut flakes. A final coat of dark chocolate makes these cookies even more decadent than the classic. Thanks to the cornstarch, these are especially tender and will melt in your mouth.
These Spiced Chinese Almond Cookies by Rebecca Firth are your new favorite holiday cookie that you didn’t know you needed. The classic, crisp Chinese takeout almond cookie takes on an updated, soft-batch vibe in these super spiced-up renditions. Be sure to add a thorough coat of the cream-egg wash—it’ll give it that über nostalgic, lacquered appearance.
