Otap (sometimes spelled utap) is an oval-shaped[1] puff pastry cookie from the Philippines, especially common in Cebu where it originated.[2]It usually consists of a combination of flour, shortening, coconut, and sugar. It is similar to the French palmier cookies, but compared to the French cookies, are not so much heart-shaped and more tightly layered and thinner, making it more crisp. In order to achieve the texture of the pastry, it must undergo a eleven-stage baking process.
