Shortbread cookies sandwiched with Dulce De Leche, that my friend is an Alfajor, need I say more? Nice people, husband LOVES Alfajor, I do too, but I hadn’t been pining for it like he has been the last months. Baking Bite’s recipe was posted right around husband’s birthday (perfect timing!), and while I truly meant to make it, did not. I also spent few weeks in Brazil, and brought only ONE back for him. (I know that was pretty bad…)
My first baking project post vacation had to be a batch of Alfajor with homemade Dulce de Leche!
Made my own Dulce De Leche (or Doce de Leite where I’m from!) in a slow cooker. Super easy and delicious! The cookies came out a little thicker than I’d like, but still they we’re crazy yummy. Specially one day later when the Dulce de Leche and the Cookies have been together long enough to form a beautiful tasty union. (This was husband’s tip, he loved them so much he thinks I should sell them! I have to say though he didn’t quite describe it as a beautiful tasty union.)
