The history of Alfajores. Spanish delicacy.
The Alfajores arrived from Spain to South America, which in turn took it from the Arabs, who had inhabited the south of the country for 7 centuries.
They inherit it from the Arabs and influenced all of Europe with many products. It was called “al-hasú” which in Arabic means the filling. Like many words, it was deformed and ended up being called alfajor. It reached the American continent in the fifteenth century when the first trips from Europe were made
