MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I really hope everyone’s having a wonderful, lovely time, and that your Christmas is full of happiness and joy, with your friends and family!

It’s not snowing today, but it may as well be, since it’s extremely cold.

I made palitaw today because they look like snow balls, and they taste so gummy, haha. It feels like the exact right thing to make on a special day like this, when most of the world (except Australia, who’s in burning heat right now, and a few other countries) are seeing snow.

If you haven’t used glutinous rice flour before, you can find them in Asian grocery stores. I don’t recommend that you substitute with with brown rice flour because it won’t have that stickiness.

Good luck with this, Merry Christmas once again, and hope you’re having fun.

Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Once it starts bubbling, which can be anything from 4-6 minutes, add the balls one by one into the water. Stir it around a little, and let it boil for another 5-6 minutes until the balls float on the surface. Stir every few minutes or so.
