Classic alfajores filled with dulce de leche and rolled in shredded coconut |

Classic alfajores filled with dulce de leche and rolled in shredded coconut. They are so soft they’ll melt in your mouth! As far as I know, there are two ways of making alfajores: the Argentinean style and the American style. While the latter is usually made of a simple shortbread cookie, the classic Argentinean cookies […]

Moist and rich, this cake is the chocolate version of my favorite recipe for banana bread.

Combining these two flavors into […]
