Chocolate alfajores

ca6

This recipe is awesome, it’s good for breakfast, for a snack or for dessert. There is something nice about eating something small, that you don`t have to cut, and these alfajores are great for that.  If you can put your hands on some dulce de leche, do it! As you may have noticed I use a lot of dulce de leche, in my country almost every dessert takes it, but if you can´t get some or don´t like it (which means you are crazy..) you can also use peanut butter or a chocolate ganache to fill them. On the top I like to finish them with some powdered sugar, but that’s up to you. You will find the dough is a little bit sticky, so don´t hesitate to use extra flour if you think it is needed. I hope you try these and then let me know how they worked out, and remember anyone can cook anything, you just have to try!

Ingredients

  • 220 gr flour
  • 80 gr dark chocolate (powder)
  • 150 gr butter
  • 150 gr powdered sugar
  • 1 egg room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F or 180ºC
  2. Cream the butter until it gets whiter, add the sugar and keep mixing. When you have the consistence of a cream add the egg and mix well. Add the extract and then de dry ingredients.
  3. Using your hands finish to mix the batter and stretch it in order to cut the round shapes. You can use extra flour while stretching the batter if it gets too sticky. Cut circular shapes using a mould.
  4. Place the shapes in a baking tray with a parchment paper to avoid it from sticking. Take to the oven for 10 to 15 minutes or unit they get darker. Leave them to cool on a wire rack.
  5. To fill them heat the dulce de leche until it gets easy to spread, but not too much or it will fall off the sides of the cookies. Finish with powdered sugar.

Esta receta es muy buena tanto para el desayuno, la merienda o como postre. Hay algo tentador en comer algo pequeño, que no haya que cortarlo, y estos alfajores son ideales para eso. Si pueden conseguir dulce de leche, háganlo! Como se habrán dado cuenta yo uso mucho dulce de leche, en mi país la mayoría de los postres lo llevan, pero si no lo consiguen o no les gusta )lo que significaría que están locos..) también pueden usar mantequilla de maní o una ganache de chocolate para rellenarlos. Para decorarlos me gusta utilizar azúcar impalpable, pero eso depende de ustedes. Van a ver que la masa es un poco pegajosa, así que no duden en utilizar harina extra si lo consideran necesario. Espero que prueben esta receta y me cuenten como les fue, porque no se olviden que cualquiera puede cocinar cualquier cosa, solo tienen que intentarlo!

Ingredientes

  • 220 gr harina
  • 80 gr chocolate amargo en polvo
  • 150 gr manteca
  • 150 gr azúcar impalpable
  • 1 huevo (temperatura ambiente)
  • 1 cta extracto de vainilla
  1. Precalentar el horno a 350 grados F o 180ºC.
  2.  Blanquear la manteca hasta que quede mas blanca, agregar el azúcar y seguir batiendo. Cuando tengas la consistencia de una crema agregar el huevo y batir bien. Agregar el extracto y luego los ingredientes secos.
  3. Usando tus manos termina de incorporar la mezcla y estirala para poder cortar las formas redondas. Puedes usar harina extra mientras estiras si la mezcla la se vuelve muy pegajosa. Cortar formas circulares usando un molde.
  4.  Colocar las formasen una asadera con papel Manteca para evitar que se peguen. Llevar al horno por 10 a 15 minutos o hasta que se pongan más oscuras. Dejar enfriar en una rejilla.
  5. Para rellenarlos calentar el dulce de leche hasta que sea fácil extenderlo, pero no tnto como pata que salga por el costado de las tapas.Terminar con azúcar impalpable.
