Half-moon Rice Cake

Keep frozen


This rice cake is made by kneading non-glutinous rice flour with boiling water, filling the dough with sesame seeds, beans or red beans, forming it into scalloped shapes and steaming it on pine needles. Because grains are staple ingredients in Korea, there are many types of rice cakes. Rice cakes can be cooked for meals, such as tteokguk (sliced rice cake soup) and tteok-bokki (stir-fried rice cakes with gochu-jang sauce), or may be eaten as desserts, such as injeolmi (glutinous rice cake coated with bean flour) and hwajeon.

In particular, rice cakes are an essential part of the menu at Korean family gatherings. Songpyeon is made on Chuseok to thank the ancestors and heaven for the fresh-fruit and grain harvests. Chuseok falls on August 15 according to the lunar calendar, and its meaning is similar to that of Thanksgiving Day.

Songpyeons are half-moon shaped rice cakes that typically contain sweet or semi-sweet fillings, such as soybeans, cowpeas, chestnuts, jujubes, dates, red beans, sesame seeds, or honey. They are steamed over a layer of pine needles, which gives them a distinctive taste and the fragrant smell of fresh pine trees. The name songpyeon comes from the use of pine needles—song means pine tree, thus, songpyeon translates to pine cakes.
