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!
Oreo Cookies and Cheesecake. And a bit of cream. And a bit of chocolate. A match made in heaven. A universal perfection. A soothing indulgence. Enough talking, me thinks. Tea time!
The holiday season is over (for now), but this doesn’t mean dessert-indulging needs to stop. This week’s soft sandwich cookies provide all the pleasure of traditional carrot cake in a fun-to-eat package, including (and especially!) the tangy cream cheese frosting. Enjoy!
Something for adults and kids alike. The use of brown sugar in these simple, crowd-pleasing cookies helps the chocolate chips to keep their shape when baked. To be enjoyed with a glass of cold milk or a cup of tea.
