      These were fabulous. My husband is from Ecuador and his mom brought back some delicious packaged alfajores, so I surprised him by making these. He loved them so much - thanks for recipe! This is just like a shortbread but with more cornstarch than flour. We spread some with straight condensed milk and some with cherry jam, and melted half semisweet and half milk chocolate chips with a pat of butter to make them chocolate covered - they were also delicious plain. The dough seemed extremely dry using the original recipe and didn't have enough moisture to come together, so I just added a little water until it worked. It definitely wasn't like a drop cookie dough, and most of the alfajores recipes I looked at called for rolling out and using cookie cutters for the dough. As a shortcut I rolled it into a log in wax paper and stuck in the freezer for half and hour, then sliced into rounds (very carefully with a good knife so the rounds held :) I scaled it down to 1/3 so maybe that was the problem, but it was excellent with a little added water.
