Salam semua,

Hari ni ah kak sibuk sikit sebab nak keluar membeli barang, maka aktiviti main masak2 ni pun agak terhad. So hari ni kita share satu resipi cookies yg simpleje dan boleh buat in advance. Nama cookies ni Alfajores. Ha..dah macam bunyi jawa pun ada jugak kan. Camana nak sebut?? Al-fah-HOR-rays. Alfajores ni cookies yg terkenal di Latin Amerika sana nun. Tapi jangan tanya samada ah kak ni pernah sampai ke sana ke tidak ya. Ah kak dapat resipi ni dari blog Joy of Baking. The good part of doing this cookies is that you can do the dough and the filling in advance. The cookie dough ni ikut resipi shortbread biasa je and the cookies is being sandwich with Dulce de Leche filling. 

Ok, jom kita tengok resipi.

For Shortbread Dough:-

2 cups all purpose flour (I used plain flour)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup / 226 g unsalted butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Method :-

1. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour and the salt.
2. In a bowl of your hand mixer or stand mixer, beat the butter until creamy.
3. Add the sugar and beat until smooth.
4. Beat in the vanilla.
5. Gently beat in the flour mixture until incorporated.
6. Flatten the dough and wrap in with plastic wrap, then chill the dough for 1 hour or overnight.
7. Preheat the oven at 177C or gas mark 4, line your baking sheet.
8. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough until it is 1/4 inch thick.
9. Using a floured round cookie cutter, cut out round.
10. Bake about 7-10 minutes depending on your oven untl golden brown.
11. Cool on wire rack.

For Dulce de Leche :

1 litre whole milk
3/4 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoon light golden syrup
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

Method :-

1. Put all the ingredients except for vanilla in a heavy duty pan.
2. Place over medium heat and bring to boil
3. As soon as the milk begin to foam up, stir with wooden spatula.
4. Reduce the heat until the milk is just at a low rolling boil.
5. Stir frequently and scrape the side of the pan until the milk become thick, sticky and caramel in colour about 40 to 60 minutes.
6. Once the Dulce de Leche has been reduced to 1 1/4 cup, remove from heat and strain. Stir the vanilla extract.
7. Let it cool before covering and storing. It can be stored in the fridge for about a month.
(For a detailed explanation, boleh tengok kat blog Joy of Baking).

For me the taste is just nice sebab shortbread tu pun rasanya lemak2 je dan tak manis, Dulce de Leche tu pulak memang agak manis so it just marry together.

Anyway, kalau rasa2 payah nak buat Dulce de Leche tu boleh je beli yang storebought punya atau boleh je guna apa2 jenis jem yang di sukai, pun sedap jugak. Selamat mencuba.
