riverli, my mother makes something like this for Chinese New Years. She makes hers pink and fills it with a yellow bean paste and the syrup is sweet with a hint of ginger. All topped with sprinkle of seasame seeds. Yummy stuff!
hmmm those sound a lot like Longevity Peach buns, but the buns aren't in a syrup. They are delicious, though!
Wine is the food that completes the meal.
