Ten Pinoy Desserts to Perfect
Ten desserts that are Pinoy at heart.By: Minnette Gamez-Aquino
For most of us Filipinos, a meal is not complete without panghimagas (dessert). Traditionally, it's a piece of fruit, fresh or sweetened, cooked in syrup. But the repertoire has expanded to include many foreign influences, principally Spanish, that have become indigenized in look and formulation through generations.
These desserts are part of our culture and should be served with pride. Next time you have some guests from overseas dropping by, skip the store-bought sweets and make these instead. Perfect them by practicing the recipes now.
