Frosted Caramel - Filled Cookies
(Alfajores Santafecinos)
What You Need:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon melted butter
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup natillas piuranas

  • How To Cook:
    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Pour the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl, make a well in the center, and drop in the egg yolks, the whole egg, brandy, water and melted butter.

    2. With your fingers gradually mix the ingredients together, continuing to mix until the dough can be gathered into a compact ball. Remove the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead it vigorously for 10 minutes, or until it is smooth and elastic.

    3. Let the dough rest for 10minutes, then roll it into a large circle about 1/16 inch thick. With a 1½-inch cookie cutter or the rim of a glass, cut out as many rounds as you can from the dough. Gather the scraps together into another ball, roll out again, and cut into similar rounds, repeating until all the dough has been used.

    4. Place the rounds 1 inch apart on one or two lightly buttered cookie sheets, prick each one two or three times with the tines of a fork and bake for 10minutes, or until the cookies are lightly browned. With a spatula transfer them to a cake rack to cool.

    5. Pour the sugar into a small bowl and gradually mix in the heavy cream. The icing should coat the spoon lightly. If it seems thin, add a few spoonfuls of sugar; if it is thick, add a little more cream.

    6. With a pastry brush, coat the tops of half the cookies with a thin layer of icing and let them dry for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, spread the remaining cookies with a ¼-inch layer of "natillas piuranas". Pair the cookies like sandwiches, with the icing on top and the "natillas piuranas" in the center.

    To Make: about 20 cookies
