Edited by mahalia jovita b. bugasto, Lynn, Robbi, annjah
Buko and Pandan are Filipino words. Translated, Buko is coconut and Pandan is screwpine. Both of these are native products from the Philippines. Since the people in the Philippines are resourceful and naturally experimental with their foods, we see many recipes which are not duplicated in other areas.
They have conjured up a special cookie that is both delicious and exotic at the same time. Buko Pandan cookies are not just ordinary cookies. I only recently got wind of these delectable cookies.
