Buko Pie

One thing I miss about home is baking cakes and pies. With my hectic schedule and without the baking tools (they’re left at home) ,it’s really hard for me now to bake This year, I am planning to buy my own oven so that I can continue baking healthier pies and cakes. Today, I just wanted to share the first Buko Pie that I ever baked last year. I am still looking for alternatives for some ingredients to make it healthier.
