These are the 9 Filipino Cookies I would put in this year’s Holiday Cookie box. It includes both traditional and cookies that incorporate Filipino flavors. What would you include?
Yes it is that time of year to turn the ovens on and think about putting together a diverse cookie box. These are my 9 favorite Filipino cookies. You can either bake all of them and arrange them in a beautiful cookie box or include one or two of these cookies to introduce your friends to Filipino flavors and cookies.
To make your cookie baking much easier pick a cookie to make every few days and bake ahead. Then freeze until it is time to box them all up.
Not gonna lie. This one is my absolute favorite cookie that I have ever thought of. I don’t know if I can top it. There are cookies out there that say they are Bibingka, but are they though? These use rice flour AND is also wrapped in banana leaves to get that distinct flavor infused in the dough. It’s also a blog favorite and it’s nice to see these included in past cookie boxes of yours!
Yes these are a process, but oh so worth it. It tastes like polvoron stuffed yema and it has ube, pandan and langka (jackfruit) as the cookie flavors.
This is another crowd favorite here. It’s so easy to make and very affordable as well just needing cornflour, butter and condensed milk.
This recipe requires no baking! Just toasting some flour and mixing it with sugar and powdered milk. With the addition of some familiar Christmas spices, this makes for a very festive Filipino Cookie.
Basura means trash, so this is similar to those kitchen sink cookies this time with Filipino ingredients such as banana chips and dried mango. This would also be a great DYI. You can layer the dry ingredients in a big jar and type up instructions on how to make the cookie.
These Uraro or Arrowroot cookies are made with 100% arrowroot flour so it’s gluten free. They melt in your mouth and super delectable. These are also a crowd favorite.
You wouldn’t think this would work but it does and oh so well. Philippine dried green mango is used for a little of that sour punch.
I love these cream cheese based cookies. My aunt used to make something similar but with raspberry jam. These are filled with ube and mango mince.
Yes you read that right. Homemade Otap and it’s so easy to make using puff pastry. We have had some people message me saying they made different flavored sugars to dip them in before baking. That is an idea you can also use to make it your own! I would totally do cinnamon sugar.
