Peruvian Alfajores

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
My recipe for alfajores calls for 2 cups of flour, 1/4 tsp of salt, 2 sticks of butter (skip the salt if you use salted butter), 1 cup of sugar. Bake at 350 for 8 mins. (I live in high altitude so less time baking, you might have to increase time if you're not over 5000 ft). I roll the dough between 2 sheets of wax paper and use Nestle La Lechera dulce de leche which has the perfect consistency. Where I come from (Brazil) we also use guava paste as an alternate filling. I seldom use powdered sugar as it would make the cookies too sweet.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
I made these cookies today and oh-my-God, these are the best chocolate chip cookies I ever had. Perfectly crispy on the edges, soft inside, a not overpowering taste of vanilla.
