Snowskin Mooncake

Our first attempt at making snowsking mooncake! Joint effort by yours truly and our king of the house - i make the dough, he does the assembling and the tough work of knocking the little thing out of the mould.

Simple list of ingredients:

100g kueh flour
70g icing sugar
30g shortening
120g cold water
  1. Sieve flour and icing sugar together.
  2. Rub in shortening
  3. Gradually add in water till you get a soft dough
  4. Divide into portions to fit your mould

Lotus paste
Melon seeds (optional)

Mix the melon seeds (if using) with the lotus paste. Divide the filling into small portions to fit into the skin and mould. Be careful not to over fill otherwise it will burst through the skin.

Roll out the skin, wrap the filling in, and put into floured mould. Press down tight to let the patterns form nicely. Knock out the mooncake. Chill before serving.

Have fun!
