Alfajores are an Argentine take on the French macarons. These small rolled cookies with different toppings are Arabic in origin. During their conquests through Spain, the Maori people brought with them recipes for this delicacy, and these recipes were later brought by the Spanish to South America. The toppings on these cookies range from sweet jams to dulce de leche, and in Argentina, people eat them for breakfast, dessert, as well as a tasty snack with coffee. Argentina is the world’s top consumer of Alfajores.
