Lotus Blossom Cookies



My mother made these beautiful Lotus Blossom Cookies for my sister's wedding. Many people had never heard of them before, but they were very popular as the mildly sweet flavor is different from most traditional cookies. They are not baked, but fried to produce a chip-like crunch.

These are probably the most beautiful cookies I've ever seen. How are they made?!

I would love to know how they are made, but my mom still has not given me the recipe. She keeps on "forgetting" to give it to me. I will keep asking her for it and post it as soon as I get it. :)

Hi Gio,
The moulds are from my mother. She got them while on vacation. I am looking for some here. (In Canada) I will definitely fill you in once I find them. :)

Did you ever find out where those moulds can be found?

Foodaholic said...

Yes, I asked my mom and she said they can be found in Chinatown. There are Chinatown's all over North America in which the molds should be found. I have not been to a Chinatown in many years so I have not personally looked. I will definitely try to make a trip to one soon to check it out!
