Paifala (American Samoa) - Half-Moon Pies
65 mins (prep 30, cooking 35)
10 ingredients
5-10 servings
This recipe is from week six of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every country on Earth, and American Samoa is my sixth stop. This is a very tasty pineapple dessert with a hint of coconut. It comes together a lot like a calzone.
