Galleta in Spanish can refer to a cookie or a cracker. This galleta del Carmen de Bolívar is definiately a touch sweet, but it’s difficult to call it a cookie.
Also called a chepacorina, these are baked goods made of corn flour, cheese, and sugar. The 5″ disks are tender and springy but a touch dry.
Carmen de Bolívar is a little municipality a bit south of Cartagena in the Bolívar department of Colombia. This “cookie” in particular though came in a bag of six from a bus vendor near Cartagena’s bus station.
