Gack! Mooncakes!

ipsedixit | Aug 22, 2008 04:15 PM

Just received 3 boxes of mooncakes ... all kinds, with and without salted egg yolks, sweet (mung beans, pineapple, lotus seeds etc.), savory, as well as some fruity new-age ones.

Any ideas of what to do with these things?

Because eating them is not an option. I've always likened mooncakes to fruitcake, except for the fact that between the two, I would actually eat a slice of fruitcake before partaking in even a sliver of mooncake.

So, what to do?

I don't play hockey. So no need for edible pucks.

I store everything digitally. So need for edible paperweights.

I don't own any guns. So need for edible skeets.

Maybe as ... pie weights?

Maybe I can cut them up and stir-fry them?

Maybe mash them up and use as pie crust?
