Baked Walnut Mooncakes
Filled with richly delicious lotus paste, this piece of pastry is enveloped by a crust which crumbles under the sinking of your teeth. The fragile buttery exterior is well balanced against the complementary crunchiness of its embedded walnuts. You may call it a Moon cake, or perhaps Cosmic Asteroid Crumble, but whatever it is, it brings to life the season. Chang Er would be so proud.
