Edible love letters?

Learned something new today.

Kueh kapit (also spelled kuih kapek) is a thin, crisp cookie emblazoned with auspicious words and symbols. Also known as love letters, kueh kapit takes an inordinate amount of effort to make, and is thus only prepared during Chinese New Year. For many people, though, the wait is worth it.

Actually, from what I can see, it is available more or less all year round these days.

ps. Will try to find a photo of this some time later.
