What is an Alfajor?

Alfajor (pronounce "alfa-HOAR") has a long-standing history in Latin America dating back to the 19th century. Nowadays, they are found most notably in Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Colombia, Perú, Brazil and Mexico. In Argentina for instance, they are mass-produced and a huge part of the culture, very much like a national reference… and for a good reason.
