One of my friends has a huge sweet tooth. You probably know a person or two as well. It’s not a bad thing to have, but oh boy, does she love her sweets. We try to help her in the control area. But, when she gets sick or is a little down I love baking her favorite. And those are, some homemade melt in your mouth alfajores cookies. Those are her favorite and with the dulce de leche filling, I think she’s up to something with this cookie.
This cookies are truly delicious, scrumptious, and will absolutely melt in your mouth; even days after baked. Making your own dulce the leche is super easy too, but there’s nothing wrong with buying some. Make sure you slab as much or as little of it on each set of cookies as you wish. They travel well too making them perfect for a care package. Who wouldn’t want to receive some alfajores? I’m raising my hand way up high and I bet so are you.
Here’s how to I made them.

Rounds are the typical shape used for these cookies. You can make them in different round sizes. Wouldn’t that be pretty? I say, try making the alfajores using other shapes as well. There’s no rule set on stone anywhere about how you shape cookies. Go, have fun. Bake a batch or two and share with those around you. Everyone will love getting their hands on this melt in your mouth goodness of a cookie.
