marzipan alfajores with raspberry jam

Think in  these little alfajores as "petites boucheés"  or small bites because they are cute  and delicious.

The original recipe was with Nutella, but I found it  too sweet and I prefer  fill with  raspberry jam  because is a little  acid and is nice  with chocolate, and voila! was amazing:))

(Although if you want can be filled with nutella if you like)

This recipe is adapted from Libro de cocina paula 2010(Santiago Chile)

Ingredients (20 alfajores)

300 grs, marzipan I bought it in candy stores or super
but if you dont find you can make
3/4 cup of raspberry jam
300 grs dark chocolate melted (semi sweet or bitter)
some raspberries to garnish


 To make the alfajores  on a flat surface and roll the marzipan dough making  sandwich between two plastic film is more easy  to pass the rolling pin.

Leave of 5 mm. thick and with a pastry cutter no more than 4  cm.,  cut 40  circles, put them on a plate and set aside.

When ready spread one side with 1/2 teaspoon of raspberry jam and place another  alfajor on top and cap.

Press lightly and bring them to the refrigerator for 1 hour.

When you are ready  immerse one in the melted chocolate bath, bathe it, take it out carefully (you can use a fork to remove  from chocolate) and let dry on waxed paper. Top place with raspberries.

Alfajores de mazapán con mermelada de frambuesas

Piensen en estos alfajores de mazapan como algo pequeño y delicado o sea un ¡petite bouchée!, un bocado pequeño.La receta original era con nutella o podría ser con dulce de leche pero yo quería algo más suave porque el mazapán es dulce, por eso los rellené con mermelada de frambuesa (un poquito y creanme que quedaron muy buenos:)
Si alguien quiere puede rellenarlos con nutella.

Esta receta está adaptada de un libro paula Cocina del 2010

Ingredientes (20 alfajores)

300 grs. de pasta de mazapán
venden en varias partes yo usé el de Lagos del sur (falabella o Jumbo)
la pasta de mazapán tambien se puede hacer tambien en casa
ver aquí
3/4 taza de mermelada de frambuesa
300 grs. de cobertura de chocolate semi amargo
frambuesas para decorar


Sobre una superficie lisa estirar el mazapán, ponerlo entre dos film plástico y pasarle el rodillo para estirarlo.
Dejándole de 5 mm de grosor y cortar 40 círculos con un cortapas de unos 4 cm
Sobre 20 de estos círculos colocar un poco de mermelada sobre cada uno, cubrir con otra tapita y presionar un poco, llevar a refrigerador por 1 horas.
Aparte derretir en una ollita el chocolate a baño maría,sumergir cada alfajor en el chocolate, retirar y dejar secar sobre papel mantequilla para que se enfrien. Decorar con las frambuesas. Dejar reposar hasta que el chocolate esté firme.

  31. Hi Gloria,
    The roses on your header are just beautiful, that is one of my favorite colors. What a wonderful treat to have with my afternoon tea. This is a great recipe! Hope you are having a great holiday week end. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope you will come back soon!

  32. Well, now that header photo is making me miss spring and summer! Your roses are beautiful!

    I think I would like these better with raspberry jam instead of nutella, too! I love fruit and chocolate together! And they are so pretty! Wish you lived close! :)

  33. Gloria, have to also say that I clicked on the link to your twins' birthday cake. I loved reading the little story about how you adopted them and have had them since they were three days old. That is such a wonderful thing. I SO admire parents who adopt. They are extra special people. ;) And I didn't realize your twins were 17...so close in age to my triplets! :)

  34. I agree, Gloria - Raspberry Filling is a great choice!

  35. your marzipan alfajores look so sinful but so delicious! Anything with chocolates I can't resist! Hope you have a wonderful weekend Gloria:)

  36. I've always loved raspberry with chocolate, Gloria. A perfect choice with these gems!

  37. I love the rapsberry-chocolate combo!!!Se ven deliciosos,Gloria!

  47. These look really cute Gloria. I love marzipan so I know I'd adore these, but I think I'm with you on jam over nutella.

  48. Unos alfajores muy, pero muy ricos. Me gustan con la mermelada de frambuesa, creo que con Nutella quedarían demasiado empalagosos.
    Un abrazo amiga, y que tengas una buena semana.

  49. Raspberries and marzipan are two of my favourite things! I thought I would see the alfajores with dulce de leche, which I also love, but these are amazing too!

  50. raspberry and almond are nice together, and throwing chocolate in the mix only improves things--terrific treats, gloria!
