Alfajores (sp?) ?

We have an Argentinean bakery here in Houston, Manena's, that makes several different types of alfajores (in addition to dozens of other Argentinean pastries and facturas). My favorites are the ones that are dipped in dark chocolate. Oh so good.

Here's a great recipe/photo spread from Recipe Girl for alfajores:

Give them a whirl! :)

Foodie Options in The Woodlands

I'll second the rec for Jasper's so that you don't have to drive all the way in to Houston. The Town Square area is really nice (for The Woodlands) and y'all can have a nice time spending the afternoon there. You could also try Cru, the little wine bar there, which does good flights and has unexpectedly good food.
