What is an alfajor?

An alfajor is a South American sandwich cookie filled with dulce de leche and typically coated in chocolate. With a rich history that can be traced back more than 500 years to origins in Moorish Spain, the alfajor has seen countless variations and developed into a beloved cultural fixture.

In Spanish, the plural of alfajor is pronounced al-fa-hor-ays. But you don’t need to be a Spanish speaker to prefer multiple alfajores to a single alfajor!

When and where do you eat alfajores?

Alfajores are particularly popular at weddings and other festive events, whether as a dessert centerpiece or as the perfect party favor. They make wonderful gifts for every kind of holiday and special occasion. They can be eaten casually as a snack or after-dinner treat, or shared with friends over a cup of coffee. Or to put it another way—alfajores can be enjoyed by anyone, anywhere, at any time.

What goes well with alfajores?

All sorts of things. In particular, customers have told us they love pair alfajores with a cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, Baileys, whisky—or even some combination thereof! When enjoyed at a special event such as a wedding, an alfajor goes perfectly with a glass of champagne or wine. Of course, the very best companion is a friend or loved one to share in your indulgence.
