About Lucila

Lucila grew up in the Argentine countryside, in a small town a few hours outside of Buenos Aires. Like nearly every Argentine child, Lucila loved eating alfajores, and couldn’t get enough of these delicious treats.

Once she moved to Chicago, Lucila’s fond memories of the mouth-watering aroma of alfajores swirling through her childhood home, inspired her to start baking for her children. And their friends. And neighbors. And neighbors’ friends. And neighbors’ friends’ friends.

The word spread; the love grew; and a pastry business blossomed.

After several years of hard work and dedication, Lucila is delighted to share her artisanal, hand-crafted alfajores with you, so that you can create your own sweet memories.

Taste the love that goes into every bite. It’s a hug in cookie form straight from Lucila to you!
