Passed on to me from my best friend's dad who is Cuban. An authentic dessert that's light but decadent.

I greased the pan and still couldn't get the cake out. It doesn't say what size "cookie sheet." I assumed one with sides on it, not a flat one. "Fluffy" was a little vauge for me- stiff peaks, or foamy? Because I must say, I went with foamy and that didn't work out. It doesn't say what size can of condensed milk, either. It needs to be more specific, all around.
