Pastillas are a famous Filipino milk-based delicacy. Traditionally, this sweet treat is prepared by cooking fresh milk, but many modern recipes use powdered milk, instead. There are many varieties of pastillas that feature different flavorings. In this recipe, I flavored them with Oreos, the popular cream-filled cookies.
