I've been wanting to make Alfajores- Dulce de Leche filled sandwich cookies, for a long time, and finally did so a few days ago when we had some friends over. I tried this recipe.
That blogger made some perfect-looking cookies with that recipe, but the dough wasn't being very nice to me. It was so soft... I added extra flour, but didn't want to add too much, since I didn't want the dough to be tough. I tried to chill the dough and roll it out, but it didn't work... it was still a goopy mess after a few minutes at room temp. Next, I rolled the dough into a log, wrapped it in plastic wrap, and stuck it in the freezer. After a while, I took it out, sliced it and baked it. It was still too soft to really slice well, but it worked better than rolling out. It also spread a lot in the oven. I wonder if the soft dough had anything to do with the high humidity here. I won't bother including the recipe; you can click on the blog link above if you're interested. Now my quest will be to find an Alfajores recipe that actually works for me!
