What are alfajores?
Alfajores are traditional Argentine pastries made with two delicate, melt-in-your-mouth cookies embracing a luscious dollop of creamy dulce de leche caramel. Longing to share the taste of her childhood with her own children, Lucila started baking her authentic, artisanal alfajores in Chicago.
I grew up in a small town in the north of Argentina surrounded by farms and cattle ranches. Like nearly every Argentine child, I loved eating alfajores and couldn’t get enough of these delicious treats.
