Disney Recipe: How to Make EPCOT’s Alfajores Cookie at Home

We love when Disney releases recipes from the parks for us to try at home, and now we get to make the new cookie from EPCOT’s Festival of the Holidays from our own kitchens all year long!

Festival Passport

This year Disney added a great new festival booth to the world showcase, Nochebuena Cocina, and one of their new items, the Alfajores shortbread cookie, was a big hit. You can get it as part of the Holiday Cookie Stroll through December 30th for $3, or follow the recipe below to make it at home!

Disney released this recipe for National Cookie Day and we can’t wait to give it a go. This recipe is quick and easy, and will make 6-8 cookies.



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  • 1 (14 ounce) can Dulce de Leche
  • 12-16 cookies
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF. Line baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Combine all-purpose flour and cornstarch in a small bowl; set aside.
  3. Cream butter and powdered sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment until fluffy. Add egg yolk and vanilla and mix on medium speed, scraping sides occasionally, until fully incorporated.
  4. Add reserved flour mixture and beat on low speed until dry dough starts to come together. Remove from bowl and knead of floured surface until dough is soft.
  5. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut into 2 1/2-inch circles. Place on prepared baking pan, leaving 2-inches between each cookie.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.


  1. Pour dulce de leche into a piping bag.
  2. Place half of the cookies, bottom side up, on a flat surface. Pipe dulce de leche onto each cookie. Top with remaining cookies.
  3. Coat sides of cookies with shredded coconut and dust tops with powdered sugar.

Cook’s Note: To enhance the flavor of the coconut, toast it in the oven. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 300ºF, stirring every 3 minutes, until golden brown.

And that’s it! If you can’t make it to Festival of the Holiday’s this year, this is a great way to experience some of the fun at home.
