But aren't they simply adorable?

We pulled over by a row of shophouses in the little town of Bidor on the way home from our extensive eating holiday and I couldn't help but marvel at the rows of beautifully made Chinese "biscuits". Ranging from simple flowers to intricate dragons and filled with red bean or lotus paste, I couldn't resist taking a few home with me.

It did take us awhile to finally get round to eating them (because really, aren't they just too pretty to eat?) but we were definitely glad we took them home with us. Soft pastry and a generous amount of filling - they were not too sweet and moist, even after a few days.

This is probably one of my favourite reasons to take trip up the west coast - Chinese biscuits and pastries that tempt the kid in all of us.
