While Alfajores are a traditional Argentine cookie, they’re also commonly found in other Latin American countries like Chile, Peru, Colombia and Mexico.
Alfajores are soft, delicate sandwich cookies, made with a combination of cornstarch and flour. The cornstarch gives the dough a smooth, silky texture, and produces a tender, crumbly cookie. Creamy dulce de leche holds the cookies together. Alfajores are the quintessential street food in South America. They make a great afternoon snack with a cup of coffee or tea!
