Pastillas de ube
1-115 g. (4.06 oz.) pouch of powdered ube 1-1/2 c. of full cream milk 3/4 c. of sweetened condensed milk 1/2 c. of granulated white sugar additional granulated white sugar for coating 8-10 pieces of 6 x 6 cellophane paper and/or small paper cups
InstructionsPut the first four ingredients in a thick-bottomed sauce pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring. DO NOT leave the mixture unattended because it scorches fast. Cook until the mixture is thick and coats the spatula. It took less than ten minutes in my case. Transfer the mixture into a dry clean bowl and allow to cool. Make sure that the mixture has cooled completely before rolling in sugar; otherwise, the sugar will melt and you will have wet icky pastillas. When the mixture is cool, form into balls about an inch in diameter or into logs about 1/2 inch in diameter and three inches in length. Roll the balls or logs in sugar. Place the balls in the paper cups; wrap the logs with the cellophane paper. To store, place in air tight containers and keep in the fridge.
