More Law Sew?

Vintage Confectionery
This was something I remember buying from a man who would bring them around in his stack of wooden trays on the back of his bicycle. In Cantonese, it is called "more law sew" but I am not sure what it means.

Back then, the ones I ate were smaller and did not have a raisin in them. The photo shows one I recently bought from a traditional confectionery at Alexandra Village.

The old hawker who sold this used tweet his horn and shout out "hum jim pang", a sort of fried dough with savory spices, as he comes around to the neighbourhood.
