The best Alfajores from Argentina of Chocolate and Dulce de Leche.
Argentina is today the worlds largest consumer of the alfajor, possibly the most complex and ancient type of cookie in the world. The alfajor
started off its life as an Arab delicacy which was brought to
Andalucia, Spain, in the 8th century. When the tradition spread to South America, the recipe was
modified to suit the different conditions of the region, including its
different local ingredients.

Six Alfajores Filled with Dulce de Leche Coated with Meringue & Dark Chocolate
In Argentina and Uruguay, alfajores usually contain dulce de leche, the nations favourite milk-based confection. Having drawn comparisons to the French macaroon, the alfajor has a sandwich-style structure. The more traditional alfajores only have two layers of biscuit and are coated in desiccated coconut whilst the more recent additions to the alfajor family have more layers and a wider variety of fillings and toppings.
