#6. Alfajores – Cookie Sandwich

Alfajores are produced all over Latin America. But the prestige of Peruvian Alfajores is proven just by mentioning one fact. In a region as remote as Saudi Arabia, they also sell Alfajores. How did they call it? “The Peruvian Cookie”.

An Alfajor is a cookie sandwich with manjar blanco filling and coconut flakes. The powder sugar makes it one of the most addictive of all Peruvian desserts.
