The Mooncake/Mid Autumn festival has come and gone but I still have some leftover lotus and black sesame tau sar pastes. Not to waste these pastes as they are quite expensive, I made Chrysanthemum Crisp 菊花酥 (ju hua su) last week. It has a flaky crispy outer crust filled with layers of black sesame tau sar (red bean) paste, quite easy to make. Emm….. I think the flower shape looks more like a daisy to me. Anyway this is a welcome snack to our boys and they even brought them to school for their tea break. Have a try on this if you still have some leftover tau sar or lotus pastes left. I’m sure your family will be very happy to have this as their snack too.
Hope you have a wonderful week ahead
