Happy New Year to you!

This may be a shot-in-the-dark, but would you happen to be familiar with a dessert that my local Chinese restaurant says is traditional for New Years celebrations? It's a dough ball, about golf-ball-sized, covered with sesame seeds and filled with a dark semi-sweet paste in the center. I absolutely *love* them, but I have no idea what they are called, how to make them, or even what they are made of. :-)

Yes! Those are 湯圓 (tāngyuán; "tong yuen") stuffed dumplings. It's a mass of glutinous rice flour with
a sweet paste (lotus seed?) inside and served in a ginger soup.

It sounds similar to 團圓 (tuányuán; "twan yuen") which means "reunion" or something to do with uniting. A family friend had the fresh sweet stuffed dumplings made specifically for our wedding day lunch =)

Also 團圓節 (tuányuánjié) is the Mid-Autumn Festival (15th day of the 8th lunar month;
usually sometime in mid-September). This is also the "moon cake" season. =) The cakes were used to pass notes around inside from neighbour to neighbour which organized the attack on the Yuan (Mongol) dynasty on the full moon of the 8th month. The establishment of the Ming Dynasty was a "reunion" of the Chinese people.
