Cordobeses: They are made up of a fluffy pastry, filled with fruit jelly or dulce de leche and covered with a white sweet spread. Salteños: They consist of an aniseed-flavored dry dough which is cut in circles and then placed one on top of the other, filled with nugat jelly and covered with meringue. Santiagueños: Alfajores santiagueños are made with a very dry dough made up of alcohol and aniseed. They are filled with thick dulce de leche and covered with sugar icing. Santafecinos: They consist of a bread yeast dough, butter and several yolks. They are filled with dulce de leche and covered with a white coating. Tabletas mendocinas: Bars made up of a dough mixed with aniseed, yolks and pork fat. They are filled with dulce de alcayota (Spaghetti Squash) and covered with sugar coating.
