Tonight’s episode of Dream Dad had me looking for dessert just when I was still having dinner (hehe!). Fictional Wink Milk’s newest endorser Baby (Jana Agoncillo) and her Momsie (Gloria Diaz) in the hit primetime teleserye prepared a treat for Baste a.k.a. President (Zanjoe Marudo) — pastillas de leche.   I suddenly remembered how my siblings used to do the same milky concoction when we were kids. Sharing with you here my personal recipe with some add-ons as inspired by Dream Dad. (Screenshots courtesy of ABS-CBN and iWantTV)
