Today is the last day of the Chu-seok holiday in Korea, a bit similar to Thanksgiving.

A traditional treat for this holiday is "song-pyeon", a special style of rice cake.

After preparing the dough, you flatten a piece in your hand, scoop a spoonful of sugar mixed with sesame seeds, fold it over, and pinch the seam to seal it, then steam them with pine needles.

They say, if you can make nice looking song-pyeon, then you will have beautiful babies!
