lotus seed paste is surrounded by a relatively thin (2–3 mm) crust and may contain yolks from salted duck eggs." DUCK EGGS!!! I wish there had been an ingredient list available. I didn't understand anything the lady was telling me (in Chinese) but ate it anyway. Not too bad, but I will pass next time a Chinese lady hands one to me.

Crusting cream cheese recipe
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup (one stick) unsalted butter @room temp.
1 8oz. bar cream cheese @room temp.
1 tbsp. white vanilla extract
2 lbs. sifted powder sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
Cream together shortening, butter and cream cheese until nice and smooth.
Add vanilla and mix well. Sift together powdered sugar and salt and add slowly to the creamed mix. Make sure all p. sugar is incorporated.
*For a stiffer icing use less powdered sugar but use same amount of salt. If too stiff, add milk to achieve the perfect consistency.
