We inherited the love for yemas from the Spanish who introduced these all egg yolk (yemas simply means egg yolks in Spanish) sweets to the Philippines. There were a lot of all-egg yolk recipes in the olden days because they used the egg whites as binder for the mortar in the construction of buildings. Well, lucky us.
Aside from egg yolks, these yemas has crunchy peanut butter in the center and is encased in a crisp caramelized sugar shell. It is just perfect as a holiday give away.
This recipe make 50 yummy yeas.
1 c. condensed milk
1/2 c. crunchy peanut butter
5 egg yolks
2 tbsps. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. water
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
