About

A week ago I posted Filipino Mamon which is a kind of a muffin back home.You dont use muffin liner by the way..Mamon is baked and eaten just like that without frost or anything on top.The exciting part is it can actually turned into a cookie.Well,I consider this as our version of cookie.I grew up eating Mamon Tostado as my merienda.It comes in two shapes,the usual round one and the mini fat sticks.The process of making is basically the same,using the same procedure when making Filipino Mamon,only this time after baking, you have to heat them again to make it dry and crunchy.For extra reading and history you can check my Filipino Mamon(Yellow Sponge Cake).
