Ox-Tongue Cookie
Ox-Tongue Cookie
The “Ox-Tongue Cookie” is definitely the most representative delicacy of Yilan County. It gets the rather intriguing name from the tongue-like shape and has nothing to do with the animal. In the past, this thin, long pastry was used in a ritual conducted when a newborn is four months old. The cookie was hung by a string through a punched hole and worn by the infant like a necklace. Relatives and friends then used this “good-luck pendent” to wipe the infant's mouth as a way of blessing the child and hoping he or she will be gifted with intelligence. Surviving the test of time, this traditional baked good is now the pride of Yilan. Ox-tongue Cookies, to which some modern touches have been added, are now the most popular snack among visitors to Yilan. Business and leisure travelers alike are keen to bring back this local delicacy as a souvenir for friends or relatives, or simply for themselves to enjoy at home. Ox-tongue cookies come in an array of flavors for everyone to choose from, from honey, salty pepper (vegetarian), and black sugar, to milk, kumquat, seaweed and peanut butter.
