Alfajores are a favorite treat of sweet manjar or dulce de leche (caramelized milk) sandwiched between buttery shortbread cookies. These originated in Andalucia, Spain during the Moorish Conquest of the Iberian Peninsula, and have many cousins in Latin America, especially Ecuador, Peru and Argentina. The rich buttery dough varies from country to country, made with just all-purpose flour, a mixture of flour and corn starch or yucca flour.
