Buenos Angie's makes it to Broadway!
Bullets Over Broadway to be exact. See what these
I first came across Buenos Angie’s Alfajores
last fall at the lovely Gowanus Girls Market, and I was thrilled to
have a chance to talk with Angie herself. Her alfajores are distinctly
buttery, with a traditional dulce de leche filling. Her larger chocolate
covered ones are so rich that you won’t even mind sharing them. Click here to read more.
"Even though I’d had several sweet treats
already, it was really difficult for me to pass up these delectable
Argentine Alfajores by Buenos Angie's.
Crumbly, buttery cookies with a swath of dark, toffee-like dulce de
leche nestled between them. Sweet and salty at the same time, these
just melted in my mouth, like they promised"
"For a taste of South America, look for Angie Beauman of Buenos Angie's. She bakes fresh alfajores,
delicate Argentinian cookies filled with dulce de leche and typically
enjoyed with a cup of coffee or tea. Packaged individually, they make
the perfect gifts for Fall brides!"

I’m going to hold back on the Evita quotes and references and get right to the point: Buenos Angie’s alfajore is the best cookie I’ve ever tasted. Yes, that includes the iconic Thin Mint, my personal gooey oatmeal raisin recipe, and buttery Mexican wedding cakes.
Buenos Angie’s specializes in the traditional Argentinian alfajore, an extraordinary little sweet sandwich made from two soft sugar cookies held together with dulce de leche (milk-based
caramel). Iterations of this magical composition proliferate all over
South America as convenient street food – so, everyone down there must
be swooning in ecstasy all the time.
Angie asserts “they absolutely melt in your mouth” and “you have never tasted anything so delicious.” She is not lying.
When a bite hits your mouth, the buttery cookies crumble seamlessly
into the caramel filling, creating a flavor that balances sugar, flour
and salt in a gentle dose. Buenos Angie’s has been presenting at the Queens County Market
so if you’ve been attending those, you can catch up with her there.
The company currently bakes to order – minimum 12 cookies – you can place orders to ship on the site.
Happy hunting . . . Anne
