Macau Almond Cookie 澳門杏仁餅
By Ellen L.Published: 2015-09-27Chinese Mid Autumn Festival 中秋節 is just around the corner and my little girl is beside herself with anticipation! (It's her favorite holiday of the year plus she gets to stay up late!) The yearly celebration of the biggest moon of the year, the harvest moon, Mid Autumn Festival so much fun here in Hong Kong! There are moon cakes to make, shopping expeditions to make, lanterns to light and little children to dress up in festive Chinese attire , moon gazing outings to plan! After an early preparation of our traditional double yolk lotus seed paste mooncakes and our five nut mooncakes, I thought why not make an extra traditional treat to have on hand in case of the extra munchies? I ended up making some of these delectably light and flavorsome Macau Almond Cookies 澳門杏仁餅, quite easy to make and delightfully easy on the eyes.
