Alfajor de Maizena

1 Maizena alfajor in a cellophane bag with a ribbon.

Corn starch is used together with flour to give the biscuits a lighter and fluffier texture than a typical shortbread cookie. Two of these biscuits are sandwiched with dulce de leche filling and rolled in coconut.That lightness still captures the cookie’s buttery flavour, and together with dulce de leche, they will melt in your mouth. The dough is made with European style butter, fresh eggs with hints of fresh lemon zest and a touch of rum as a background flavour.

Size: Approximately  80gm each alfajor.

New Zealand handcrafted product. Our handcrafted alfajores are made in Wellington, New Zealand in small batches with love and dedication.
