Alfajores Con Cajeta (Vanilla Shortbread With Goat’s Milk Toffee)

Alfajores Con Cajeta (Vanilla Shortbread With Goat's Milk Toffee)
Flecked with vanilla seeds throughout the dough, alfajores are the perfect excuse to whip up a batch of vanilla bean cajeta—a goat’s milk variation on dulce de leche. The combination of sticky toffee-sauce and buttery shortbread can’t be beat, but it can be improved upon. My recipe replaces traditional cornstarch with tapioca starch, keeping the alfajores tender and light. Get Recipe!
