Husband and Wife Biscuits

There are biscuits and there are biscuits, but some have names just stick out.

For example, the renown Wife biscuit (lou po bing in Cantonese) and the less popular husband biscuit.

The nursery rhyme on "What Are Little Girls made Of?" goes like this:

What are little boys made of? 
What are little boys made of? 
Frogs and snails, 
And puppy-dogs' tails; 
That's what little boys are made of. 

What are little girls made of? 
What are little girls made of? 
Sugar and spice, 
And all that's nice; 

That's what little girls are made of.

It is somewhat similar when it comes to husband and wife biscuits when you look at their ingredients and resultant tastes. The husband is stuffed with fermented bean curd, garlic, and black sesame mix paste whereas the wife is filled with candied winter melon and caster sugar.

Hands down, the best wife biscuit is found in Hong Kong with flaky crusts that melt in your mouth and well-grounded winter melon filling.

And, then there is the Sun biscuit (Tai Yang Bing in Chinese) from Taiwan. When I had it for the first time, it was simply out of this world with its maltose filling and flaky crust.
