I have shared many recipes over the past few years and some of my favorites have been the Filipino desserts. From Puto to Halayang Ube, there are so many different Filipino sweets and desserts and I enjoy eating just about all of them. Devouring these sweet treats reminds me of being back home in the Philippines. I thought that I would recap and share some of the favorites from the past few years.
