Recently over the holidays Em&M were finally reunited! With busy schedules and living in polar opposite directions over the US, these family gatherings are always the best. This holiday we went on a bit of a baking frenzy, but my favorite recipe that we finally got to try was alfajores.

When we visited Chile we treasured these delicate dulce de leche sandwich cookies as a pre/mid/post hike snack. You really don't need an excuse to eat cookies, right? Note that if making the dulce de leche (vs. store bought), allow for a few extra hours for boiling and cooling the filling.
