How to Make Mini Alfajores
These buttery, bite-size Spanish sandwich cookies have an amazing caramel filling. Everyone will love them!
When I have a friend or family member who’s feeling down, under the weather or just needs a little pick-me-up, there’s nothing I love more than giving a homemade treat to sweeten his or her day. It’s a simple way to show you care–and it tastes good, too! After all, “stressed” spelled backward is “desserts,” right?
One of my favorite, easy-to-make homemade gifts is Mini Alfajores. These Spanish-inspired sandwich cookies are made with buttery sugar cookie dough that’s baked and filled with sweet, indulgent dulce de leche and then sprinkled with powdered sugar. They’re a great way to spread a lot of love in bite-size form.
You’ll need just a few simple ingredients to get these gifts going: Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix, butter, flour, an egg and a can of dulce de leche. For the filling, you can also use cajeta (another caramelized liquid) or jam.
