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.

I lost the recipe I had for alfajores and these are exaclty the same alfajores I used to eat in Argentina. Thank you for the recipe! I omitted the coconut because I didn't have any in the house.

It is nice to see more latinamerican recipes on this site. My father is Argentinian, and of course we are big fans of alfajores (specially the Havanna brand). I would only suggest adding tangerine zest to the cookie dough, as in some traditional argentinian recipes. Other recipes call for using cooked egg yolks in the dough. Also if you don't have original dulce de leche, you can make a very similar one by boiling a can of condensed sugared milk during at least 2 hours, but BEWARE: cool off completely before opening!

Very good! The best dulce de leche is "Conaprole" brand. You can find this in a argentinean bakery or uruguayan bakery. This tastes just like my mother's alfajores....She's, of course, from Argentina.
