Sweets for the New Year
For our sweets we had the sticky rice and puto cheese or steamed rice cakes with cheese on top. This is one of the favorite snack food of the Filipinos. It is made of rice flour and the coconut milk with sugar. Then before steaming you place a small slice of cheese on top. I don't make them but I order because it is kind of a lot of work. They are small but tasty
Those wrapped in the banana leaves are also native delicacies , made with glutinous or sticky rice, sugar and coconut milk. They say serving sweet and sticky food is supposed to be good because it will keep the family together. I just bought enough for the family.
So I hope this 2015 will be sweet and close together.
