Sunday Sweet: Alfajores

I really am beginning to think that their food pyramid of Argentina is comprised solely of refined white flour, sugar, red meat, and beer/wine. Maybe add some Coca Cola to the mix.

On the sugar end, Argentinians have a serious sweet tooth. One of our coworkers went to visit her family near Rosario, and brought back these delicious treats.  Alfajores are crumbly little cakes made with almonds crushed into flour and made into tiny layers, filled with dulce de leche, and smothered in powdered sugar.  They’re delicious.
