A variation of Chinese harvest moon cakes, I found this in "China : the culture" book. Very tasty and rich, so be careful! add more vanilla, if you so wish.

I think there is an error in the ingredients list. It needs a binder/flour - we cooked it and wound up with a watery pan of melted sugar & butter with almonds floating in it. Not too appetizing.
