Story Behind this Recipe

These white moon cakes are eaten during the Moon Gazing Festival in China. Cantonese style is the most common, but this is a variation. They are usually called "moon cake pastries." The dough has a floury coating. These are usually made with pork and lard but today I made them with anko and vegetable oil, making them a bit healthier!
