    I love all of the above, Connie, but most especially the boat tarts and the turrones de casuy. These are some of the goodies I bring back to Canada after my visit there. Unfortunately, the boat tarts have a short life span. It hardens so quickly I can’t even save some for future indulgence. Thank you for reminding us what we’re missing. Maybe it’s time for another holiday.

    Thanks, Lisa. :)

    Josie, see? It’s because of people like you that many makers of these delicacies find a renewed interest in marketing them. :)

    Hi Connie,

    Just curious as to where you purchase your boat tarts from or if you have a recipe. I’m in the CA Bay Area and the Goldilocks by me do not have the boat tarts like you have pictured (and like what I grew up with)… just flavors like Ube and jackfruit. I’ve tried a few Asian markets but have also had no luck. Thanks for your help!

      Oh, in the Philippines, they’re everywhere — including the supermarkets. I’ve never tried making them at home because they’re too labor intensive and my kids aren’t too fond of them.

    Hi Ms. Connie! Do you have the recipe for boat tart and pili tart? Thanks. Or if anyone can share, I’d appreciate it.

    i love turones de casuy. When I was a kid, it amazes me that you can eat its wrapper. I think it is a delicacy from pampanga. You can find it in every pasalubong shop in San Fernando. I studied HS in Guagua, Pampanga and there’s an old bakery there called La Moderna. They sell this turones de casuy and I always buy them, a bit expensive for a HS student on a budget allowance. Now, I have an idea what to bring next time, instead of the usual polvoron, dried mangoes, mangorind…
