What is an alfajor?
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.
Alfajores date back as far as the 8th century in southern Spain, when the Moors brought them to Spain. The traditional Spanish alfajor has been produced in this region since ancient times. They then made their way to the banks of the Rio de la Plata in the 16th century when the Spanish conquered South America.
The “modern” Argentine alfajores, like Lucila’s traditional flavors, date back to the 19th century. In Argentina, alfajores are enjoyed in the morning with coffee, as an afternoon snack or a decadent dessert. We invite you to taste and share the love at any hour and let us know when they taste best to you!
