A Filipino Treat!

Kristine helped the individuals at the day program make Maja Blanca dessert which is a Filipino specialty. Bradley Burgardt, Trevor, Helen, Bradley Bews, Brooke, Margaret, and Irene all pitched in to help with measuring, stirring, cooking, and layering the ingredients to create this dish. There were many steps and patience was required as they cooked and stirred until it thickened and then waited until the next day to try it!

Here is the recipe if you want to try it too!
