Alfajores are a staple of Argentina. There are endless variates and they are available at every shop, bakery, grocery store and café. They do have one thing in common, dulce de leche (milk jam) a smooth, creamy and gently sweet preserve we like to put on everything. Think slowly cooked milk with a little bit of sugar in a process that resembles preserving fruits or making apple butter.
Why have a big cake when you can indulge with this bite size truffles? Think dense, gooey cake mixed with a little dulce de leche, coated with your favorite topping. Have one or have 10, no one is judging!
