Alfajores are a traditional Argentinean dessert. They’re light and literally melt in your mouth. They are usually filled with dulce de leche but you can fill them with your favorite butter cream frosting and roll them in sprinkles, less traditional but way more fun!
This is a great Christmas cookie recipe but can be used for any special occasion in your life. I’ve done balloons for birthdays, wedding and baby showers and graduation caps. I’ve also done some fun cookies like my California themed cookies and Blackhawks hockey jerseys when they went to the Stanley Cup. Let your imagination run wild. Your family and friends will love them!
My grandmother made these cookies for me on rainy days or snowy days, depending on the season. I have such fond memories of helping her in the kitchen, although sometimes I was just in her way to be honest.
