Fancy enjoying the sweet flavours of Latin America without leaving your home? Make this delicious biscuit sandwich filled with Dulce de Leche and coated with chocolate.
This sweet treat is so popular in Argentina, you’ll see people unwrapping them on the subway, enjoying them with coffee at the cafés or eating different versions at high-end local restaurants. They are a perfect thing to make at home for dessert, a birthday party, or just because you love them!
During this online baking class, we will make the cookie dough from scratch. Your talented teacher will share useful tips on freezing, preserving, thawing and baking this type of dough.
You will then learn to make the alfajor using dulce de leche —our most typical spread to use in Argentina — and talk about some substitutes and different fillings that you could use in the Alfajores making.
We will finish this marble by coating it with chocolate and showing you how we wrap them for a present! Alfajores are wonderful handmade gifts for loved ones as everyone will enjoy them.
See you at the class!
