Alfajores (sp?) ?

LNG212 | May 11, 2009 08:27 AM

I was at a street fair yesterday and amid all the same-old was a little stand selling alfajores (not sure I'm spelling this correctly). The lady said they are Argentinian. They were sort of cinnamon cake-type thing with a wonderful custard on the inside that was both vanilla-sweet and a little bit lemon-tart. They were about 3 inches across, round but flat (like a pancake but not nearly as thin).

Has anyone made these? It was so good -- I'd love to try to replicate it at home but I don't even know if I'm spelling the dish correctly!

Any information / help would be much appreciated.
