Bakpia or Hopia (In Chinese means 'good pastry' - the name it is ... Ube hopia or hopyang ube is a variant of hopia from the Philippines which use purple yam. Hopia has thin flaky pastry traditionally filled with bean paste which I am not a fan of.
I find Ube Halaya or puple yam jam a perfect filling for this pastry. Ube is very popular and personally I love everything with ube.
This recipe is actually not hard to make. The process makes 2 dough that is rolled together which makes the crust flaky. So it is very important to follow that step. The dough for hopia is a little oily compared to a pie crust but that is what we want for hopia to achieve it's thin flaky crust. Delicious!
On this recipe, I used my Ube Halaya or Purple yam jam recipe. To save time, you can also purchase a ready made Ube Jam in a bottle which readily available in the market.
