Mooncake<br>
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia<br>
---------------------------------------<br>
Mooncakes are a Chinese pastry traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival. Typical mooncakes are round or rectangular pastries, measuring about 10 cm in diameter and 4-5 cm thick. A thick filling usually made from lotus seed paste is surrounded by a relatively thin (2-3 mm) crust and may contain yolks from salted duck eggs. Mooncakes are rich, heavy, and dense compared with most Western cakes and pastries. They are usually eaten in small wedges accompanied by Chinese tea.

so how do you make them? I have looked at them before and the recipe seems complicated--but now that I have pics to go with them--might be easier?

I do not get the allure. I live in a town that is ~75% asian so these are prevalant in fall and winter. I personally think they are disgusting. Sweet white bread with an egg yolk in the middle. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused"> Blech.
