Spiral Thousand Layers Mooncake usually made with lard and coloured with natural colouring powders for the skin, and filled with sweetened purple yam paste and salted egg yolks. The skin are super flaky and the size of the mooncake is perfect for not-sharing! Opppsss!

Onde-onde or ondeh-ondeh is one of the traditional “kuih” in Malaysia; they are one of my favorites.
They are made with pandan leaf (screwpine leaf) infused dough and filled with “Gula Melaka” (palm sugar). Coat them with grated fresh coconut.
*Kuih is a term for Malaysian sweet cakes or pastries.
