    momaphet's Note:

    Alfajores are a shortbread like sandwich cookies filled with dulce de leche (use your favorite or try Microwave Dulce De Leche). These cookies will soften after the first day, which is desirable in an alfajor, but if you like yours crisp store the filling and cookies seperately and fill on the day you plan to serve them. Prep time does not include chilling the dough. Yield is approximate.
