During the Mid-Autumn Festival, my mom, dad, sister and I would sit in our backyard admiring the moon. We would drink tea, crack and eat sunflower seeds and eat mooncake. Like turkey is to Thanksgiving, eating mooncake is the quintessential tradition of celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival. Snow skin mooncake 冰皮月饼 has become a favorite dessert served during the Mid-Autumn festival. The texture, ingredients, and methods of cooking are entirely different from the traditional mooncake.
