Alfajor Cordoba: Ta great!

The weakness of all Argentines is alfajor. The weakness of the Cordobes is also the alfajor, but... make it Cordoba, please.


Every alfajor has its magic. You can never miss a special filling, a layer of chocolate or glaze, or whatever you like best. Many Argentines tell us from abroad that the alfajor is one of the things you miss most when you are far away. Also the weed, the sweet milk and the Fernet, obvious! But there is one type of alfajor that drives us crazy to the Cordobes, and everyone who visits this province. It's the cordovan alfajor. Companies that are engaged in the production of this delicacy are many. Among the most recognized are La Quinta, El Rosario, Chammas, among others.

  3. Pre-coat the plates, and place the lids. Bring to a moderate preheated oven (160°-170°) for about 10 minutes, remove, allow to cool, so they peel off on their own and do not break.
  4. Fill to taste and pinch them with loose glaze. Wait a little while... and eat!

Secret tip for a glaze “pee-cuckoo”

Place in a cup the impalpable sugar (about half a cup). Add water little by little until the sugar loosens, lift with the spoon to control it runs. If you use it white, add a few drops of lemonjuice; if you g
