This dessert hybrid combines two beloved Filipino sweets into a creamy, indulgent pie. Crushed lengua de gato goes into the cookie crust, providing a sweeter, lighter crumb than a crust of graham crackers. Blending leche flan sounds insane, but you can't argue with the incredibly sinful result. The flan gets liquefied into a custard-like consistency with all of its caramelised flavors intact.

Don’t be worried if this all sounds a little too sweet—you’ll be surprised to find that this recipe isn’t. Nothing a quick sprinkle of flaky salt can fix (or make better).o

1 ½ cups lengua de gato crumbs

¼ cup white sugar

6 tbsp melted unsalted butter

1 leche flan
