Are you looking for a unique dessert to try and create? Why not learn how to make the famous Argentinian Alfajores with Tierra Negra? This sweet treat is so popular in Argentina, you’ll see people unwrapping them on the subway, enjoying them with coffee at the cafés or eating different versions at high-end local restaurants!

During the class, you will make cookie dough from scratch. Not only can you use some of the dough to create your baked goods, but you can also freeze it too. Now you'll always have some dough ready in the freezer to make yourself some fresh sweet treats.

You will make the Alfajor using dulce de leche (our most typical spread to use in Argentina) and talk about some substitutes and different fillings that you could use. You will then finish off your Alfajore with a coat of thin chocolate, and discover the various ways you can gift wrap them for presents.

These traditional Argentinian sweet treats are a fantastic way to learn more about a different culture and cuisine, and great to bring to a dinner party.
