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.
- 1 cup of sifted all-purpose flour
- 1 cup of corn starch (or more)
- 225 gm unsalted butter
- 6 tablespoons confectioners sugar
- Dulce de leche (manjarbalnco) for filings

The alfajor pic of yours totally look like the one on the dulche de leche jar! Looks really really sweet and yummy!!!
In Argentinian we call them “alfajorcitos de maizena”. There are a lot of alfajor varieties and they are sold in every store with all kinds of fillings and toppings.
The Argentinean version has coconut powder around the edges, yummy!
