One quarantine baked good that's not getting enough attention are cheese rolls. And we're adamant about correcting that. Ube desserts, burnt basque cheesecakes, and tres leches are all great but surely there's room in your heart (and your stomach) for one more amazing treat. Below is a list of where you can buy cheese rolls you won't be able to stop eating. Whether you like them fluffy or flaky, you'll find the *perfect* one for you.
Cheese Rolls by Jennelle
These cheese rolls are soft, flaky, sweet, and tart all in one bite. And many have said they're reminiscent of the cheese rolls from Porto's, a famous bakery in Los Angeles. They're a bit different from the rolls you're probably used to seeing because they have more of a cheese danish look, but you gotta give it a try. Order a dozen for P375.
Buttery & Co
According to Buttery & Co, it takes 24 hours of love, passion, and patience to make a batch of their Three Cheese rolls (P70 per piece; P420 for a box of six; P840 for a dozen).
But their bestseller is their Buttery's Puff, a homemade puff pastry with their own mix of cheese. It's topped with cereal and sugar. One piece is priced at P110; a box of six costs P660; and a dozen, P1,320.
If you want something delicious and comforting, take several bites of their classic, pillow-like cheese rolls! Fluffy, buttery, and everything you want in your next merienda. One box of 10 is priced at P250. And if you're a fan of ube, they also have ube cheese rolls you can buy for P350/box of 10.
Bread, Batter, & Roll
Bread, Batter, & Roll's version is topped with creamy buttercream that makes each bite too good to be true. It's also sprinkled with sugar which adds a crunch and is a pleasant surprise. If you don't want cheese rolls that are too sweet, get a box of six for only P150 (one dozen costs P290).
Jazz Bake Eat
A product of trial and error, Chef Jazz's cheese rolls may look simple on the outside, but it's bursting with flavor (and with cheese). Their original cheese rolls are priced at P145 for a box of six, but they also have a version with floss: pork, spicy pork, chicken, and spicy chicken. Those cost P195 for half a dozen.
If you want cheese rolls that make you feel good in more ways than one, go for MoodBoost's flaky pastries. They told Cosmopolitan that when you order, a portion of what they earn goes to UNICEF's COVID-19 emergency campaign. A box of 12 cheese rolls costs P375.
Sweet Bella Desserts
Sweet Bella Desserts' cheese rolls are soft and moist and so, so generous with the cheese! Order a box of six pieces for P400.
