Alfajores - Dulce de Leche sandwich cookies

Alfajores are sweet and simple dulce de leche sandwich cookies made of two buttery cookies filled with a dulce de leche filling. Roll yours in coconut, dust with powdered sugar, drizzle with chocolate, or just enjoy plain like I do! If you’ve never had Alfajores before, there are a few things to know about them: They’re exquisite, melt-in-your mouth sandwich cookies made with a rich dulce de leche filling and often rolled in coconut. They’re embarrassingly under-rated in America, as they’re difficult to find here and many people don’t even know what they are. I’m hoping to change that as they’re absolutely delicious.

The key to an Alfajore is that creamy dulce de leche filling. Now here’s an ingredient I don’t use: brandy. It’s commonly used in alfajores but it’s not an ingredient I typically keep in my pantry (or a flavor I particularly care for). If you’d like to add it, add two teaspoons along with the vanilla extract. You may need to dust your dough with a bit more flour when rolling it out. They may be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days.


  • 1 cups unsalted butter softened¹ (226g)
  • ½ cup powdered sugar (65g)
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar firmly packed
  • ¼ cup cornstarch (32g)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose plain flour (250g)
  • 1 ½ cups dulce de leche click the link to make your own dulce de leche at home!
  • Desiccated coconut² for rolling or powdered sugar for sprinkling optional
