Alfajores are a shortbread like sandwich cookies filled with dulce de leche (use your favorite or try Recipe #456857). These cookies will soften after the first day, which is desirable in an alfajor, but if you like yours crisp store the filling and cookies seperately and fill on the day you plan to serve them. Prep time does not include chilling the dough. Yield is approximate.

I think this is an Argentinian recipe although these were made for me by a Peruvian family! Sandwich these cookies with dulce de leche (caramel)

I found this recipe on Nestle's website about 3 years ago. I have made it numerous time. It requires a bit of work but the results are well worth it. The time for preparing and cooking is a guess, I have never timed it.

Alfajores are a kind of South American cookie popular in Peru and Argentina. This version has a touch of almond in the crisp butter cookies that sandwich the caramel filling (dulce de leche). Dulce de leche can be found at most Latin markets and on the international aisle of well-stocked grocery stores. Found in The Washington Post & saving for rainy Saturday Christmas baking this weekend. Prep time does not include a minimum 1 hour chill time. The cookie dough can be refrigerated for 1 week. If the dough is thoroughly chilled, allow it to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before rolling it out. The unfilled baked cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days. Filled cookies are best eaten day the same day they are assembled, but can be kept at room temperature for 2 days.

Alfajores are a favorite South American treat made of dulce de leche (caramelized milk) sandwiched between buttery shortbread cookies. An adaptation from Carnation. NOTE: Can substitute ready made dulce de leche for a quicker version.
