I made these 'Tau Sar Paeng' based on the recipe of my Salted Egg Pastry, but used red bean paste as filling as the name suggests. Can pass off as kaya puff, but when you bite into it, then you'll see!
Looks yummy? I enjoy looking at the layers of pastry. Now, all I need is a hot cup of Chinese tea to enjoy the fruits of my labour ........... Join me!
