Origin:  Laguna

Buko pie is one of the most must-try products and specialties of Laguna.

To make your own buko pie, first make a pastry. To make the pastry, combine flour, salt and sugar in a bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Combine egg yolks and ice water and blend into flour mixture until it turns into dough. Add a little more water if dough is still crumbly. Refrigerate for 30 mixtures. With a rolling pin, roll dough thinly, about 1/4 inch thick, on a lightly floured board. Make the pastry.

Bake the pie crust, set aside and cool. Combine pie-filling ingredients except cornstarch mixture in a deep saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. When boiling gently, add cornstarch mixture, stirring fast, until combined mixture has thickened. Pour mixture evenly into prepared piecrust. Let cool, then refrigerate until firm. Top with toasted sweetened coconut flakes just before serving.

Ingredients for making buko pie is as follows:


Pie Pastry
3 cups Flour
2-1/2 Tbsp Sugar
3/4 Tsp Salt
3/4 cup Vegetable Shortening
1/2 cup Ice Water
3 Egg Yolks

1/2 cup Young Coconut Juice
1/2 cup Condensed Milk
