Alfajores-. Argentinian pastry

These are alfajores, they come in different versions with different ingredients inside of them. The most classic are those who have a heart of dulce de leche ( a sweet made with milk and sugar, a kind of soft caramel) between two layers of pastry. These picture was taken at a new pattiserie that opened near the Buenos Aires Zoo, called Nucha. They make all sort of gourmet cakes and alfajores. Posted by Picasa
