Alfajores de Maizena
1 1/4 c. flour
2 c. corn starch
1 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
3 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla
1 c. margarine, less 3 T. (so 13 T. of margarine altogether)
Dolce de Leche (like caramel but BETTER. You can buy it at Walmart in the Hispanic/Latin aisle. It's in a can similar to that of a sweetened condensed milk can. You'll need the whole can.)
Mix all dry ingredients EXCEPT powdered sugar together (flour, corn starch, baking soda, baking powder).
In another bowl, mix margarine & powdered sugar. Add yolks one at a time and mix well. Add vanilla.
Add dry ingredients little by little until you get a dough (mix this by HAND). The dough will be about the consistancy of sugar cookie dough.
Spread cornstarch (NOT flour) on countertop and place the dough on it. Sprinkle a little more cornstarch on top of the dough. Roll out like you would for sugar cookies. Cut into little circles about the size of a silver dollar or so. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet. Let cool. Spread dolce de leche on one cookie & press it together with another cookie. (Like a sandwich or an oreo) Roll edges in coconut. Enjoy!
