“I put this recipe together a couple of years ago for someone who was desperate to find a recipe for these Filipino pastries. I had only a commercial ingredient list, but these turned out well, like cheesecake-like muffins or cupcakes. I can't be 100% certain if they are exactly like the Filipino versions, but they are delicious in any case. --Sue”
