The recipe of delicious and irresistible alfajores stuffed with caramel (also known as arequipa or dulce de leche), takes me back to my childhood and the smell of my kitchen when my mother baked these soft cookies, with a little caramel in the middle they make one tasty cookie sandwich. They are the perfect addition to any homemade dessert table on holidays or special occasions. As a stay-at-home mom and chef, I recommend them as a finishing touch for your celebrations.
Alfajores are a typical dessert in Spain and parts of Latin America such as Venezuela, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Peru and Mexico. The recipe varies by region, but I'll teach you my own version with my personal touch. You can make them in different sizes and shapes. The contrast between the wafer and dulce de leche filling is delightful!
When I prepare alfajores, my daughters can’t resist the lure of the kitchen, but the best thing is that we make them together as a family. The ingredients are simple, and the recipe is easy to prepare.
