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?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
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.
