The next day cookies - Alfahores

At first I though the recipe was one of the downfall recipes but apparently - they do get better the day after.
My daughter is the alfahores lover in the family - I sometimes wonder if the stork that brought her didn't make a stop in Argentina.

The dough seemed a bit dry - but as I said - these are the next day cookies. I am not terribly fond of the baker that gave us this recipe - but that is a different matter and I will give hjer credit for this recipe.
