Does anyone have an alfajore recipe?

Hello there,

I have been desperately craving some alfajores, but cannot find any good Argentine-style alfajores here in California. Does anyone have a good recipe for the cookie and dulce de leche that they'd consider sharing? I'm desperate.

Thank you so much!

  1. I use different recipes but the ones I like best use cornstarch, no lemon peel. I usually cheat on the dulce de leche and boil the sweetened condensed milk can for a couple of hours. This is one I've done and liked. It's a very light cookie with all the cornstarch,
