Queso de bola ("ball of cheese") is an aged, semi-hard cheese that originated in the Netherlands and is named after the town of Edam in the province of North Holland. It is traditionally sold in spheres with a pale yellow interior and a coat of red paraffin wax. We use only the authentic Marca Piña Queso de Bola, imported from Holland, which stays faithful to the recipe and salt content of the 1900s. It is customarily served topping the Filipino ensaymada with slices of jamón during Noche Buena -- the traditional feast of Christmas Eve which lasts until the early hours of Christmas Day.
the best ever

This was my favorite of all and I don't think I can go back to any other (brand) of ensaymada.
Simply the best!

Package arrived immediately. Presentation is great. Ensaymada was to die for. The cream was just right, not too sweet and blended well with the queso de bola. Bread was light and not doughy. Definitely my new favorite. You can taste the homemade goodness and care in making these. Love them!!!
My favorite Es!

Chari's Es are simply the best. I have not tried a flavor I didn't love! But the Queso de Bola is my favorite one. It is the perfect blend of sweet, salty and creamy. These Es are simply addictive! Each bite is as heavenly as the last one! Ordering is quick and easy. Shipping is a bit pricey but fast and oh-so-worth it! I order a lot and freeze some for later... although consuming everything in one sitting usually crosses my mind and I have to fight the urge. :)
More than 5 Stars

Queso De Bola Ensaymadas are our favorite - and have become a favorite of our good friends from Chicago. This is our third shipment to them, and they can't wait for the next one. BY FAR the BEST ensaymadas around. If I could give more than 5 stars, I definitely would!

You know how you sometimes taste something so particularly scrumptious you have to close your eyes? Yeah, that'll happen when you bite into these queso de bola Es. Our fave will always be the classic, but this is a close second, with just enough cheesy flavor mixed in with the butter, and that perfect dough! Yup, it is hard to part with these delectables!
