The texture of Coconut Alfajores score points: inside soft and outside crunchy, with a milky cream filling, rolled in chewy coconut. Kids will love the vanilla and dulce de leche filling, and they’ll look at you with twinkle thank you’s. The recipe gives you a choice of two sizes, but I prefer the minis because they’re easier to eat, without any fuss. The minis produce an abundance from just one batch. One last note: the cookies will soften once they are filled, so don’t worry if the cookie seems a bit toothy at first. Once the cookies absorb the moisture from the Dulce de Leche, the whole experience will change and you’ll be in love.
This recipe comes from Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-in-Your-Mouth Cookies by Alice Medrich. It’s one of my favourite go-to cookie books as it has the cookie covered. If you are a cookie lover, you’ll need to buy this book. Trust me, it is a good one.
