These are simple shortbread sandwich cookies with a sweet filling of dulce de leche. While they have origins in Moorish Spain, alfajores are especially popular in South America. Different dough recipes are used for the cookies depending on the country. I like to use our Vanilla Shortbread Cookie Recipe for best results. We show you how to make the best Dulce de Leche filling and our quick and less messy technique on how to fill these buttery cookies.
