Tau Sar Piah or Bean Paste Biscuit

In Outside Dubai, singapore, snacks n bites on December 4, 2012 at 23:24

Tau Sar Piah translated literally as Bean Paste Biscuit is a traditional Chinese snack that my late grandma used to love buying for me when I was a kid. There can be ever so much choices and varieties of pastries available for us today but sometimes all that we look for as we grow older would be the familiar tastes of childhood.

They come usually in salty (savoury bean paste) or sweet (sweet bean paste) filling traditionally but these days we have new flavours like cranberry, pumpkin, melon seeds, winter melon, assorted nuts, pineapple and pork floss

Brought a whole box of 8 biscuits home but most of it was gone before the end of the night. Despite the new flavours that have been introduced, in this case, I’m more of a purist and I prefer the salty filling and only the salty filling lolz.

It may not be trendy and in, nevertheless it sure brings lots of wonderful memories with it. Here’s the last of the lot and found a traditional little plate for it!
