I thought of making this recipe because I miss the taste of Filipino sweets. We plant and harvest sweet rice in our rice fields and my grandmother and aunts would make different kinds of delicacies, but it was like a golden rule that it had to be made with coconut milk. I remember my uncles grating fresh coconut from the tree in the yard to get the most fresh, sweetest coconut milk. I added creamy peanut butter to add a new taste and my family just loved it!
