Amazing Argentina Alfajor Cookies
Show Notes

On Three Kitchens Podcast this week, Erin goes down memory lane to when she and her family spent time in Argentina. While there, they discovered a delightful little sandwich cookie called alfajor.

Alfajores are melt-in-your-mouth shortbread-like cookies typically made with dulche de leche filling. They're sometimes rolled in coconut or covered in a dry meringue. Erin also filled some of hers with nutella. We loved them all, especially with the meringue coating.

You guessed it! This week you'll learn all about how to make alfajores with a variety of fillings and a simple method for coating them in meringue. Nobody will guess these are actually not very difficult to make. If you can roll and cut out cookies, you can make alfajores and impress everyone you deem worthy of receiving one.  That is, if you can stand to part with them. You might just want to keep them all to yourself and we wouldn't blame you one little bit.
