3/4 cup of raspberry jam
300 grs dark chocolate melted (semi sweet or bitter)
some raspberries to garnish


Method

 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.
