An Alfajor is a traditional delicacy in many countries in Latin America, mainly in Argentina. Other countries with a tradition of alfajores are Perú, Uruguay, Chile and Spain. It is made of two biscuits / cookies joined together with a sweet filling in the center (dulce de leche, sweet fruit, chocolate, mousse, etc.) and usually is bathed in chocolate or glazed. According to the Argentine Food Code, Article 132, “Alfajor: product consisting of two or more cookies, crackers or baked dough, separated by fillings such as jams, jellies, or other sweets, and it can have a bath or outer covering“.

The Alfajor is a treat with its origin in Arabia, which comes to America in the holds of the ships during the Spanish colonial period. Its name comes from the term al-hasú, which means “the filling”. The characteristic round shape seen in the Alfajores in Latin America came from Spain, where you can find a background of this delicacy since the eighteenth century.
In Argentina, the Alfajor is being produced since more than 130 years ago, but its start as a mass-produced bakery goes during the 50s, on the Atlantic coast, more precisely in Mar del Plata, with Havanna being a company that is expanding in the business since then, having achieved worldwide recognition.
