Maizena Alfajor (pronounced [al.faˈxoɾ])

Alfajores in Latin America are a very known pastry and have different variants throughout the continent.
The type presented in The Peruvian House is made out of corn starch (Maizena) which is composed by 2 soft cloud-like cookie lids, made out of a balanced amount of corn starch and flour, the middle is filled with a very creamy and sweet caramel cream, rolled in coconut shreds and covered in powdered sugar.

In Perú, just like in Argentina, there are multiple types based on the region. In Argentina and Uruguay, there are 2 main variants: artisanal made with corn starch and glazed in either dark or white chocolate. In Chile these are known as “chilenitos”.

More variants are in the works and will soon be available.
