Has anyone here ever made alfajores?

A friend and I have made several attempts to get these exactly right (she's trying to impress her Peruvian boyfriend's parents) but we haven't figured out the recipe to make them perfect.

I haven't had the Peruvian ones, but our in-house expert says our cookies are too much like Christmas cookies: they're too heavy and when you bend them they break which is apparently wrong.

Can anyone give me advice on making these cookies?

Thank you!
