Alfajores – an Argentinian sweet treat

Alfajor de maicena and a latte

Thanks to Anina2007 – aka Ana – for sharing this! She says: the “alfajor de maicena” is made of two layers of cookies (made with corn starch, eggs, etc) stuck together with lots of dulce de leche and sprinkled with grated coconut. A perfect match for cafe au lait.
