The Joy of Alfajores
Alfajor pastries have long been Argentina’s most delectable chocolate treat. Easily the first choice of sweets to balance beautifully bitter mate. Dulce de leche, a gooey-rich caramel spread, is generously layered between a light and crumbly gingerbready pastry, then submerged in rich dark chocolate or powdered in fluffy meringue confection for a satisfying gourmet treat with subtle hints of lemon, ginger, cinnamon, fruit. Try eating just one — no simple feat!
