Moon Cake

For yesterday's Zhong Qiu Jie celebration, I baked moon cakes. I used a recipe found here. Since I didn't have lotus seed paste, I used red bean paste (also a common filling for moon cakes). And since they have nuts in the filling, I made a few special ones without filling for that Lo to enjoy.

His first time to eat moon cake! The next couple pictures had some bad flash glare, so sorry about that (why is food so hard to photograph?). Anyway, I ran low on filling, so these are not as "full" as moon cakes usually are, but Jerry assured me he likes it better that way. Cute! Very tasty and they do look like little round "moons," even if I did not have a way to press the tops with design the way moon cakes usually are.
