12 Days of Cookies: Marcela Valladolid’s Caramel Cookie Sandwiches
Marcela’s pretty shortbread cookies, stacked around a rich caramel, are a take on alfajores filled with Mexican cajeta — a traditional goat’s milk caramel. Can’t find goat’s milk? Whole milk is a decent stand-in.
“I love making these cookies over the holidays because they transport me straight to my childhood,” she says. “My father would travel frequently to Guadalajara and he would always bring back these amazing cookies my aunt would make for me and my siblings. Just thinking of them makes my mouth water. They are a family favorite during the holidays.”
