Homemade snowskin mooncakes
Since last year, I have bookmarked this recipe. I manage to accomplish my last year wish this mooncake festival. To my surprise, my two princesses enjoy making these snowskin mooncakes very much. I prepare all the ingredients like the ready mixed koh flour with icing sugar, shortening and ice water. I knead half of the flour with pandan and half of the flour with pink colouring. I used pandan filling for pink dough and red bean filling for pandan dough. My two princesses helped me to wrap the filling inside the dough. I would say that they have done a pretty good job in shaping the mooncakes. They have so much fun playing with this edible dough.
Although all the ingredients were actually bought from store, they tasted yummy too. May be because we homemade these ourselves. Perhaps next year I should try to bake mooncakes.
Happy Mid Autumn, folks.
