      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Mill sugar for 10 sec/speed 9. Add remaining ingredients to the bowl in the order as listed. Combine for 30 sec/speed 6 with the help of the spatula. Knead 30 Sec/Closed Lid/Interval. Repeat if necessary.


    Remove dough and wrap in plastic wrap or Thermomat and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.


    Use this time to get the Dulche de leche cooking, see below.  


    Preheat oven to 180`C


    Roll the dough 0.5cm thick and use a 4cm cutter to make round shapes.


    Bake for 6-7 minutes or until just cooked. They are best if they are still pale in colour, rather than brown.


    Spread coconut on tray and toast for 2-3 minutes. Set aside for serving.

  2. Dulche de Leche
  3. Put all ingredients in the bowl and cook for 50 min/varoma/speed 5 with MC removed and the basket on the lid.



    Transfer to a glass jar or jug.

  4. To Serve
  5. Assemble by placing two rounds of Alfajores together with a spoonful of dulche del leche between. Once they are all filled, you may want to chill in the freezer for 15 minutes. Remove from freezer and then dip half of the biscuit sandwich in the melted white chocolate and then dip into toasted coconut.



    To melt white chocolate, grate in mixing bowl 10 sec/speed 9, then cook 3 min/50`C/speed 3

  • I was nervous doing this

    I was nervous doing this recipe as I rarely bake biscuits and when I have previously, they have often been disasters!

    However I needed a Spanish biscuit to serve with coffee at a Spanish themed dinner party. These were absolutely perfect. The dulche de leche worked perfectly and was so delicious. The biscuits also worked perfectly. All the guests raved about them.

    For anyone who is not a baker I would suggest the following tips which are not mentioned in the above instructions (probably because they are too obvious for most bakers!): Let dulche de leche and biscuits cool before combining. Rather than spreading dulche de leche, just place a blob in centre of one biscuit, top with second biscuit, then press gently. Use baking paper on top of biscuit dough so rolling pin doesn't stick. Chill dough for longer than 30 minutes if you are new to cookie cutting, as the longer you take, the softer and stickier the dough becomes and the harder it is to work with.

    Wow, these are amazing!!!

    My hubby & I made them on Sunday.

    I was a little worried how they would turn out, as we are new Thermomix owners, (less than a month old), we thought we'd try these out anyway tmrc_emoticons.-)

    Thank you, your instructions were easy to understand & follow!

    (I did put them on a cake rack in the fridge, to allow for the chocolate to set, without sticking to a tray)

    Delicious! ....i'm sure my inlaws will love these traditional sweets...   tmrc_emoticons.-D
