    ALFAJORES DE MANJARBLANCO / Cookie Sandwich filled with manjarblanco     

   Ingredients :
2 cups sifted flour
ū cups butter
4 tablespoons confectioners sugar


Mix butter, flour and sugar. Blend with a fork or a pastry blender.

Finish kneading with hands until a uniform dough is obtained.

Roll dough on a flour surface. Cut circles with a round cookie cutter (the size and form are optional).

Transfer them carefully to greased cookie sheet.

Bake in preheated oven 350° F (175° C) for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool.

To assemble: take one of the cookies, and carefully spread with manjarblanco. Cover with another cookie. Sprinkle with sifted confectioners sugar.


If making a large one, double the recipe, and make 10-inch circles (25 cm). It is better to roll the dough on top of a plastic film or parchment paper. This way it will be easier to transport. Once on the cookie sheet, remove film or paper. Yields: 3 circles.

Proceed as with the small alfajores.
        Yields: 60 alfajores (2 inches - 4 cm)
Reviews for: ALFAJORES DE MANJARBLANCO / Cookie Sandwich filled with manjarblanco

From Boston, USA :
I tried this recipe and really works! Itīs an easy dessert and a good snack too.

From Guntersville, USA :
Manjarblanco can be found in many US grocery stores under the Nestle label called Dulce de Leche. Look for it in the aisle that sells Latino foods.
