I have a question about the recipe "Homemade Alfajores" from Sophia R. I don't have a handheld mixer. Can I cream the butter by hand using another utensil, would that not be enough to cream it?

You can certainly use a wooden spoon or balloon whisk to cream the butter. But to save yourself from sore arms make sure you use really soft butter.
