Taiwanese sun pastries

My cousin Olivia brought some Tai Yang Bing (Taiwanese Sun Pastry) back from Houston. Oddly, I had never tried these before, probably because my parents aren’t into sweet stuff and I fear things that are in the same family as moon cakes. The sun pastries are pretty good. The layered pastry (made with lard) is flakier towards the outside, doughier towards the inside, and filled with some kind of gooey honey paste. I enjoyed it, especially because it wasn’t too sweet, but I won’t be seeking it out. I would eat it again though if it appeared in front of me.
