The Mooncake Collection – Mid Autumn 2015

Happy Moon Festival! It has finally come to the Mid Autumn season, when my house is filled with trillion boxes of mooncakes.

From this year collection, namely from hotels, famous restaurants and even some cookies specially made for the celebration of this family festival, the most favourite among the endless varieties are the ones from the Maxims and traditional Chiu Chou pastry.

The former one has a worth-noting oily egg yolk, with moist and sweet lotus paste, whereas the latter one is deep fried delectably with satisfying taro filling.

I also find improvement in The Mandarin’s mooncakes and the beautiful packing is never disappointing.

Finally, the moon cookie is basically butter cookie with mooncake flavored filling. An unexpectedly creative option after all.
