This is the fried version of Guam's pumpkin turnover. It's even better the next day!
If you are planning a holiday gathering or thinking of what to bring to the party, this is a great make-ahead dish. Make the filling on day 1, mix the dough and shape the buchi buchi on day 2, freeze for months ahead, fry it the day before then take it to the party the day of.
from a fan: "I used your recipe for buchi buchi and I was a rock star!!!"
from a fan: "The crust is really flaky and tastes good by itself."

For me, life is all about a positive mental outlook and having motivational tricks in my back pocket to stay happy, healthy, and productive. Here’s a quote I found in my all-time favorite inspirational book, Dale Carnegie’s Scrapbook – A Treasurey of the Wisdom of the Ages.
“One thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.” – Albert Schweitzer
