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.
