How to make Buko Pie

Buko Pie Recipe is a popular Filipino delicacy in the southern regions of Luzon especially in Laguna Province. It is known that whenever tourists or travelers whose in Laguna, they don’t leave the place without buying buko pie because it serves as a traditional pasalubong treat or homecoming gift that every Filipino does when they visit the place.

Buko Pie is made with a filling of young coconut meat, creamy coconut juice milk or condensed milk, cornstarch and sugar. This dessert is excellent for mid-afternoon snacks paired with your favorite coolers or popularly known here in the Philippines as “samalamig”.   This one is the meaty version of Buko Pie.
