South America has a lot to offer for sure, but for me it will always start where it should – with an “A” for “Alfajores”. I’m not a huge coconut fan, so instead of going for a traditional variation with shredded coconut, I just dusted my alfajores with icing sugar. I also “cheated” with dulce de leche by simply boiling a can of condensed milk for 4 hours as we used to do in our childhood. To say I’m happy with how those turned out would be a huge understatement. Enjoy!
