    My in-laws came back from Buenos Aires last night and brought me so goodies:) It is called Alfajores, a cookie filled with dolce de leche treat. Yumm!!:)

    well, only i can tell you that this "alfajores" you got, are the cheapest brands (but very classics: "capitan del espacio" is one of my favorites)!!
    are you "demoed" the "havanna┬┤s"?

    Get some pasqualina. Not totally sure of the spelling. My wife is from Uruguay and makes some mighty fine food. If not for tennis, I just might get fat.

    Alfajores are awesome
    you can make them anywhere.
    two round biscuits with manjar* in between and deeped in melted chocolate. then just put them in the fridge for awhile and they'll be ready.

    *manjar: boiled condensed milk.

    Manjar? I thought it was called dulce de leche? My mother in law boils cans of condense milk to make dulce de leche. I love Argentine food. Next year my wife and I will be going Argentina to visit her relatives. I can't wait!!!:mrgreen:

    same thing POGO, I think manjar is just chilean for it, but it's the same thing.
    have fun in Argentina, I've also been there a couple of times.

    I recently had my first dining experience at an Argentinian restaraunt. When we walked in the Matre-de said, when you eat here, its all about the beef. And it was! some of the best steak I have had. Will return once my cholesterol level goes down.
