*Rich and Delicious Alfajores*
Greetings my people from steemit today I want to show you how to make some small cookies commonly called in my country like alfajores.
The alfajores are flavored cookies, very soft flavor that melt in the mouth and are filled with arequipe or jam, I can say that they are part of the Creole sweets, to prepare them you must have in your kitchen the following ingredients.
• 1 cup of icing sugar
• 3 cups cornstarch
• 2 cups of wheat flour
• 4 teaspoons of baking powder
• 1 cup and ½ butter
• 3 egg yolks
• 4 teaspoons of vanilla
• One piece of grated lemon peel
• For the filling if you want arequipe chocolate and simply jam
To start you should put in a cup the flour, cornstarch and baking powder set aside together for a while, then in a separate cup you can begin to mix the butters with sugar and egg yolks adding one by one, mix well , proceed to add the mixture to the mixture little by little in the same way add the other ingredients bat well until you get a dough, when you have the dough ready and proceed to stretch it in a table sprinkling with flour, you must stretch it until at least ½ cm thick.
Then proceed to cut medallions about 4 cm in diameter, and place them in a tray previously prepared. Bake for about 15 minutes at moderate temperature.
When they are ready, let them cool for a while and then start to spread them with the chosen candy. Stick them and if you wish you can sprinkle them with sugar or spread them on the edges with grated coconut.
As you can see are very easy desserts made for parties or family gatherings very loved by children and adults.
I hope you like them and try to do them, greetings.
