This is the original recipe for the  famous alfajores, just like my grandmother used to make.

To make the alfajores you are going to need:
  • 7 oz. buttter
  • 7 oz. all purpose flour
  • 10 oz. corn scratch
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 5 oz. sugar
  • 3 eggs yolks
  • 1 tsp conac
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
Dulce de leche or Caramel and shredded dry coconut.

  • Pre heat the oven to 325
  • Sift the flour, corn scratch, baking powder and baking soda. Put aside.
  • In a stand alone mixer, mix the butter and sugar for 3 min. Add the eggs yolks one a the time, the conac, vanilla, and lemon. Add the flour mixture. The dough should be very dry and crumbly.
  • Roll the dough on a flat surface sprinkled with flour until it is 1/4 inch thick. Cut out circles 2 inches in diameter.
  • Bake in a non-stick pan or on parchment paper for about 10 to 15 min or until very light golden brown.
  • Let it cool for 30 min before spreading on dulce de leche to make a sandwich .
