Bought them fresh from Ayer Tawar.

All three are really quite similar. Maybe you should cut one and show us the filling as well.

Your biscuits made me so hungry!..Never tasted it before. What's inside the biscuit?

For a moment, I thought the Kong Piang from Air Tawar looks different! The Kong Piang i know are usually roundish in shape, usually just plain flour, with a small amount of salt. However, tasted some that came with filling of sea-weed and oyster when I was in Fuqing, China last month.

There's a story to the Kong Piang. Apparently, during the Kuomintang war, the locals made their biscuits hard, with no fillings, made a hole in the midlle, string them and hang them around their neck when they were out at war.

ahmah, that is indeed an untold story about kong piang.

Too bad, it was my mistake, i mistakenly thought this is kong piang, but it's the hockchew li ping.

The inside is pork, onion mixed with nuts, sesame, sugar and winter melon (冬瓜条). And yup, it's yummy to eat.

i think if you can cut the biscuit into halves and show the fillings in the photo will be better.

Can take away extras for me the next time you visit Ayer Tawar?

Never tried this type of biscuit before.
