Pastillas De Leche (Philippine soft milk candy)

FeaturedContest Winner
Pastillas de Leche if directly translated from Spanish means “milk tablets” or “milk pills” which basically describes this Filipino sweet delicacy. This is made from evaporated milk with some mixtures to make it like a dough. The dough will be formed into small shape and be coated with sugar. 

This can't be usually found in other countries and to taste Philippines sweet delicacy at your place, I made this step by step instructable. 

This recipe can produce 50 small pieces, but number can vary in size.

Step 1: Ingredients:

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup Evaporated Milk
  • 1/3 cup Milk powder
  • 1 can condensed Milk
  • few drops of Vanilla Extract
  • Sugar
  • Butter
* note: if making more just make this as the ratio.

Materials to use:
  • wooden stick
  • cooking pan(try not using tefal)
  • plates
  • mixing bowl
  • Spoon
  • Knife
  • Chopping Board
  • Container (For sugar)
Most important thing needed
PRESENCE OF BODY AND MIND or else...

Step 6: Wait for it

The texture of the mixture will change as the milk evaporates.

This step took around 10 minutes. 

While waiting you still have to mix to even out the heat to the mixture.

stiffing of the mixtures on the side can be a sign that it could be already cooled just give some time after seeing them while mixing.

*note: Just be careful not to over cook it, you will see black things if it does.
