“If you come to San Juan and you don’t eat ‘María Luisa’, you didn’t come to San Juan”

Rafael Ricardo – Accordion Master

The story they tell in San Juan Nepomuceno, Bolívar, is that the ‘María Luisa’ cookie, a delicious delicacy that has become an obligatory reference in the municipality and is undoubtedly part of the town’s culinary heritage.

It was born more than half a century ago. They are white and cherry cookies that adorn the windows of the bakeries and shops in the neighborhoods, on the hot corners of San Juan Nepomuceno.

They are made of flour, covered with meringue – made with beaten egg and sugar – and a dulce de leche filling, the recipe for which is a secret!

It is not known where the imperial name of this biscuit comes from or what its origin is. A village matron and a descendant of another empirical pastry chef, who has since died, claim her invention.
