Its name is indeed arab, from the dealhasú, and means "filling" and it came to Europe during the colonization. Prepared mainly in the monasteries, with a square-shape, filled with fruit marmalade and coated with sugar. The alfajor Mardel is a cookie filled with dulce de leche covered with white chocolate. It is ideal for breakfast, snacks or desserts.
Dulce de leche Mardel Alfajores are produced in Barcelona, Spain following the typical Argentinean recipe.
