Mini Alfajor Cookies

This month we have sandwich cookies for you, and we love Alfajor cookies.
The cookies are original from Peru and every country has there variation, I love to make this one the crumbles a little while you eat it.
In the center of the cookie you will find super delicious Dulce de Leche, I know I use it a lot, but it is completely addictive and that is the filling for this cookies.
So easy to make and very delicious, great for parties or any kind of fun activity like a picnic; a plus to these cookies is the they don’t melt.
Make the cookies and let me know what was your favorite part and of course how much you like them.
Enjoy.
