Would make this again.
The sauce was really hard to make and get to the correct consistancy, with practice it would take no time at all. I could not find the Dulce de Leche in a can here, so any suggestions on where to get it? Other than that they were great. 4 stars

These turned out great--and I'm picky about my alfajores. I also used dulce de leche in a can for the filling, it's easily available and so good I wouldn't even consider making it myself, which I used to do. I was looking for something different and liked the almonds in the dough. 5 stars

Fantastic, thanks a lot for the recipe.

The pastry worked well for me, I only replaced the filling with a tin of Caramel cream made out of condensed milk (low fat) that I bought at the supermarket. (much quicker)

My granny used to boil a tin/s of condensed milk fully covered in water 2 hours to get our caramel... we also ate the filling with plain biscuits or bread... (please do not open the tin for cooking and after cooking it lasts ages unopened, if you boil it do few tins at once and keep them aside)
5 stars

I moved to Tucson from Virginia and was amazed to find out that alfajores were not mexican, as in Virginia you can find them in a couple different tex mex restaurants. So I tried this recipe and it was great. I really missed these wonderful cookies.

I think the dough may call for more butter to get it to bind a little better. Also, while waiting for my cookies to cool my filling became really thick and brittle, but adding more milk and reheating got it back to the right consistency.
5 stars
