|Alfajores filled with Dulce de Leche|
|I filled some with little bit of each|
This week’s Baked Sunday Mornings challenge is for Alfajores filled with Dulce de Leche. I’ve never had these, so may not be a good judge, but here is a post from my friend, Paula, who lives in Buenos Aires, that describes them in a little more detail. She is beautiful, creative, and talented, so please take a moment to check out her blog, Vintage Kitchen Notes.
These delicate, crumbly cookies are traditionally filled with Dulce de Leche. The Baked Boys provided a recipe for Dulce de Leche, but here in Oxnard, we have a very talented jam-maker, named Lourdes from Ecuador who makes it, so I used hers. They’re really easy to make (if you use prepared Dulce de Leche). They are great with coffee and tea. The cake-like cookies are laced with Rum and Lemon Zest and the delicate caramel flavor of the Dulce de Leche is a great match. I also made a few with Nutella ( I know, Mark just gacked!), which I liked.
