52 Weeks: Week 38, Moon Cakes

Pin It now!
The Mid-Autumn Festival (which our family usually calls the Moon Festival) is always around my Mom's birthday.  Part of her Chinese name is actually from the name given to the Moon Goddess.  It's been tradition that every year we give her moon cakes since they're only available this time of year (mid to late September).  I love these things.  Filled with lotus seed paste and sometimes having one to four salted duck egg yolks.  Delish.
