a very long story! but i am trying to have a traditional taiwanese engagement here in California and a big part of the engagement ceremony is have these taiwanese engagement cookie.
Does anyone have parents who are making them do this traditional ceremony and would know where in the US I can order these cookies? Or who to contact in Taiwan/HongKong/ any where overseas to have engagement cookies shipped?

Er, are you talking about the box of western-style cookies cuz u can get those from Canto-HK style bakeries too. Or are you talking about tai-yang bing? Not sure about CA, but you can get them from bakeries in Flushing, NY. Try Hong-Yeh, Apollo, Yi Mei Feng bakeries in Flushing. They’re all taiwanese.
Or you could order them from Taiwan? CA is closer to Taiwan (which is why there are more of us there =( ) Apparently Kuo Yuan Ye might be able to sell them to you?
Are there any relatives coming for the wedding from Taiwan who might not mind lugging a few suitcases of cookies for you?

Not sure if it’s too late, but if you’re talking about those bridal cake boxes that the bride family hands out to relatives and stuff like shlieka said you can get them at any chinese bakery place.
Not sure if there are a lot of them in Boston, but you can also order them online.
Check this place out: http://keewah.us/Keewah-Mooncake-traditionalchinesebridalcakeboxes.aspx
Keewah is a super well known bakery in HK so your relatives should know who they are when they get the boxes.
