Alfajores are some of the most prevalent sweet specialty in Argentina. They are a type of cookie made of two sweet cornstarch biscuits joined together with dulce de leche. You will find alfajores coated with dark or white chocolate, or simply covered with coconut or sugar powder. These Argentinian cookies can be eaten for breakfast, as a dessert at lunch or dinner, or as a snack to accompany the tea, coffee or mate (traditional drink of Argentina). Alfajores are sold in panaderias (bakeries) as well as cafes or in individual packets at specialty stores, which offer some of the best in Argentina. Although they are rich and sweet, they are not overwhelmingly sugary, it’s very easy to get tempted to eat one every single day.
