Any excuse is good to use dulce de leche and the walnut alfajor is an Argentine classic (as you see it, dipped in white chocolate and with the whole walnut on top!).

The dough has a touch of cocoa and vanilla essence.

The tapas must be very tender, so be careful with cooking so they don’t turn into walnut cookies.

Ideal to process the dried fruit and leave some bits so they have texture.

Moisture is the worst enemy of nuts

The ideal storage temperature is below 20°C

Keep them away from light, we prevent them from oxidizing and taking on a certain unpleasant taste  Although it is common for them to be sold already peeled, if you want to preserve their flavor and properties better, it is best to buy them in the shell and store them in a cool, dry place. 

If they are peeled, store in the fridge, in a tightly closed container.

If you bought a lot of quantity you can also freeze them.

It does not change its nutritional value or texture because they have very little water  Well stored they last between 9 and 12 months.

I leave you the recipe and the step by step in photo for 10 alfajores .
