Piyaya / Piaya for Singles

Oh how I missed piaya.

I have been wanting to make these Negrense treat so I went ahead and googled for some recipe and found this very simple one from blueapron.
(Thank you!)

Since I am only feeding myself, I only made 1/4 of the recipe.

Here it is:

1/2 cup flour

1 tbsp butter

1tbsp water

1/2 cup of muscovado sugar; some call it raw sugar (i used up less than this)

sesame seeds (optional but better if you have these)


1. Mix flour and butter while adding water slowly until you will get this consitency. You must be able to form the dough.

2. Divide into 6, roll, and flatten. Fill the center with muscovado sugar. Seal and roll again to flatten. I don’t have a rolling pin, so I just pressed these by hand. No worries. (At this point, you can sprinkle in the sesame seeds before  you flatten the muscovado-filled piaya.)

3. Grill on a non-stick pan and brown each side. The sugar might ooze out. Be careful not to burn your piayas.

4. Serve hot! (Do not get too excited, though. You wouldn’t want to burn yourself!)

    Instead of sugar, you can also use ube (yam) jam.
