If you're in need of a homemade gift to give out for the holidays, homemade pastillas is an easy go-to. But to help make it more personal, this recipe can be customized to make almost any flavor you want, using three types of flavoring agents: extract, jam, and powder.

Here’s an idea: cheesecake pastillas. Use cream cheese in your recipe, then coat your pastillas with crushed grahams instead of sugar. You’re welcome!

  • 1 300ml can condensed milk
  • 2 cups powdered milk
  • sugar, for coating
