Buenos Angie's

Angie was classically trained in the art of baking and pastry – she learned the classic way, alongside her mother in their Long Island kitchen.

A serious car accident in 2008 sent Angie into treatment for back pain, where she met with an Argentinian doctor. It wasn’t long before Angie was toting in her homemade alfajores, asking the doctor to sample and critique them. After a few months, the doctor had to admit: “You know, the alfajores have always been good, but now they taste just like they do in Argentina.”

Now, Angie’s pain management has evolved into a “100% Argentine-approved” alfajore business. And while we’re so sad that Angie had to go through the pain, we’re glad to have gained her fantastically creamy dulce de leche sandwich cookies.
