The whole morning, I searched the net for some menu/recipe to prepare for Noche Buena. I told my son that I won’t make embutido nor siomai this year. It is always part of our Christmas tradition to have them on the table, but it would be nice to have other recipes for a change. Nor would I prepare fruit salad,( it’s not really a favorite for us except for mom). I prefer fresh fruits sliced into bites or just eaten without any heavy cream or syrup, besides, canned varieties of fruits are not that healthy. My son said that I should at least serve fried chicken (his all-time favorite), lechong kawali and Filipino style pasta (in his dictionary, that means something sweet). I prefer Italian, I like pesto, he doesn’t so I guess we have to compromise. Would love to try carbonara and lemon chicken or maybe stir fry tenderloin in pineapple sauce. I came across this site featuring mostly Filipino food complete with video and I saw this simple recipe on making cheese puffs. It looked so yummy so I searched the cupboard if I had ingredients to make some and I came up with this.
And here’s how it’s done. It came out yummy, I was surprised because the ingredients were so simple and was quite easy to prepare. The good thing about it is, it has no sugar, just perfect finger food for a hot cup of coffee or green tea. I was able to make ten pieces out of the recipe.
I wonder if I could mix some nuts to have that crunchy feel, will definitely try it on the next batch that I will make. Have some, they’re still hot from the oven.
