Peanut Brittle and Piaya

I’m one lucky girl! I received some special treats from my friends!

Before Ate Del left last Friday for Baguio, she asked me what I want for “pasalubong.” I told her I want some peanut brittle. So yesterday, I got my peanut brittle from her.

Peanut brittle is a thin candy wafer made from peanuts, salt, sugar and shortening. These ingredients are mixed, boiled and poured on a thin metal sheet and allowed to cool down. Peanut brittle is one of Baguio’s delicacies. It’s sweet and very delicious.

Another tasty treat I had yesterday were the piaya given to me by Ate Kathy .Ate Kathy’s shared the piaya from a friend who came back from his trip from Iloilo.

Piaya on the otherhand is a flat unleaved bread made from flour, sugar,salt, butter and sesame seeds, very yummy!

It was an afternoon filled with yummy treats for me.
