One of the all-time favorite “pasalubong” is the Buko pie. This sweet and rich pie is made from young coconut meat which is locally known as “Buko” meat. “Pasalubong”, on the other hand, is a gift for a family member or friend bough by a traveler returning from a trip.
Buko pies are mostly sold in the southern parts of Luzon. The places that are known to make great tasting Buko pies are Laguna, Batangas, and Tagaytay (a city in the province of Cavite). Within these places lie series of pasalubong stores that sell this famous pie and a lot more sweet delicacies such as espasol, yema, ube halaya, puto, kutsinta, and many others. Whenever I’m in one of those areas, I usually purchase from a store called Collette’s. Well, that is just my personal preference. In your opinion, which stores sell the best buko pie?
Maja Blanca is a Filipino dessert made from coconut milk, cornstarch, and sugar. Often called Coconut Pudding, this luscious dessert is easy to make and the ingredients are very common.
Unknown to many, the original Maja Blanca Recipe does not include corn and milk. In this recipe, I added whole sweet kernel corn and condensed milk for added taste and a more creamy texture.
Since Christmas season is just around the corner, this would make a very good holiday dessert especially during potluck Christmas Parties and Noche Buena as well.

Kutsinta or brown rice cake is a type of “kakanin” that uses lye water as an ingredient. Kutsinta is somewhat sticky yet chewey (thats what lye water does) at the same time and is best eaten with grated coconut on top.
This recipe requires minimum effort and the procedures are so easy to follow. If your thinking of making something for merienda, this would be a very good recipe worth trying.
