This dessert is recognized worldwide for being originally from Argentina, belonging to its gastronomic tradition for more than 130 years, but the truth is that the origin of these delicious biscuits goes back to the Arabian culture, who exported it to South American region in the period of the Muslim invasion of Spain.

Whether Argentine or not, the Alfajores de Maicena are delicate and delicious cookies that melt in your mouth. Stuffed with dulce de leche and with a touch of coconut, it is a dessert that you can hardly get rid of, once you know it.
