The last item which Erika shared with us is a cookie filled with dulce de leche called Alfajor. Erika made this cookies for his son’s school party and it was a hit. Many parents asked for the recipe. Dulce De Leche is a caramel like spread that can be made by simmering sweetened condensed milk in the can for hours. But, we are very lucky that we can find them in jars in Real Canadian Superstore for about $3.
The Dulce De Leche Cookies (Alfajor) is very delicate and they just melt in your mouth with the caramel sweetness lingering in the mouth. I enjoyed the cookies very much as I have sweet tooth.
