Alfajores Argentinean Style

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
The flavor of these alfajores is really good - I used orange extract and zest, and they are really amazing. I had some trouble getting the dough to come together - it was basically the texture of sand and would only get cohesive if I pressed it really really hard (but would fall apart if I touched it). I had to add some milk to make it workable, and I think it affected the final texture. Next time I will add one more egg and increase the butter a little bit. They also came out very puffy - which they are not supposed to - but I think I can blame high altitude for that. Here, cookies tend to puff up and then collapse, and I must have taken these out before they collapsed. Overall, very good.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
We just made this recipe for our house (multiplied the recipe by 6, and it was all gone at the end of dinner). It was amazing! We reduced the sugar to 3/4 of the total and could have reduced a little more. Also used halved the buttermilk with whole milk. We got an amazing caramelized crust, and a soft moist interior. Yum. There's actually no need to change anything else, but next time, we'll use less butter to not torture our arteries as much.
