I love Mooncakes! 

This special one was given to him by his aunt.  I told him i like one with yummy yolk inside.  Then he broke it in the middle and showed me two rich egg yolks inside!  I was overwhelmed...for the love of mooncake!

Mooncake is Chinese of origin and usually eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival.  Made out of thick filling made out of red bean or lotus seed paste surrounded by thin crust and may contain yolks from salted duck eggs.  Traditional ones have imprints on top of Chinese character for "longevity" or "harmony".
