I took this to the KYRU and somebody wanted the recipe.

Biko, Filipino Dessert

Grease 13 X 9 pan & press in the cooked rice.

Mmm, looks good, but what is coconut jam and where would I get it?

Most asian stores will carry it. It comes from the Philippines and is sometimes called Coconut spread. I just dug out my jar from the fridge, it is a 12 oz. glass jar and cost $1.99.
