Powdery Cookies filled with Manjar Blanco

Alfajores are surely one of the most popular cookies in Peru. The sweet sensation of two fine, almost powdery cookies nicely filled with just the right amount of creamy Manjar Blanco (Dulce de Leche) melting in the mouth is just absolutely delicious and addicting.

Preparing this typical Peruvian goodie is really easy, at least if you have the right recipe for Peruvian Alfajores; yes, it might be time-consuming, but worth every single minute. The taste of homemade Alfajores is just incredible. And while using a good Manjar Blanco can make the difference I added a recipe for Peru's Dulce de Leche as well which of course can be used for many other Peruvian sweet treats like my favorite Pionono.
