WATCH: You Don't Need To Go To Baguio For These Alfajores

These amazing cookies are delicate, crumbly, and have dulce de leche. What's not to love?

Alfajores are delicate cookies that have origins in South America but have also become popular in the Philippines, thanks to it being available in Baguio. It's the crumbly, almost melt-in-your-mouth texture of the cookies that make it impossible to eat only one. Dulce de leche, a caramelized condensed milk spread, is also sandwiched between two of these delicate cookies, making it doubly hard to resist! 

It's an easy recipe, with easy-to-find ingredients, and less of a hassle than traveling all the way to Baguio just for a taste!

These cookies are best (and quickly!) made in a food processor but you can easily do it by hand using two knives or forks. Just press the cold butter into the flour mixture until moistened and you're good to go. The dough keeps for a long time when refrigerated, so you can make these ahead when you find you have time on your hands and the ingredients ready. You can even freeze the uncooked cut-out cookies so when the craving hits, you can heat up the oven, place some on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet, and pop in the oven to bake. Slather your favorite spread between two cookies and it's a snack you'll savor with every bite.
