Green tea snowskin mooncake




This is my first time making snow moon cake, I tweaked the recipe a bit, for the skin ,I added greentea powder and the filling I added almond and tangkwe (sweet dried melon) to the lotus paste. The original recipe is from here. Yumm, with green tea flavor.


Ingredients for snowskin:

75g commercial koh flour
100g icing sugar
25g shortening
Green tea powder
100ml iced water
Filling Lotus seed paste (or any paste of your choice)
Roasted melon seeds


Method
Sift koh flour and icing sugar into a mixing bowl
Mix in green tea powder with water
Add all ingredients into the mixing bowl and combine into a soft dough.
Scale at 25g each. Shape into round balls and keep aside.
Combine fillings and scale them into 30g round balls.

Sprinkle some koh flour onto surface, roll flat but make sure it’s not too thin or else you’ll get uneven amount of snowskin and filling.
Wrap in the paste and slowly round it. It’s sorta like making pau. Try to seal the ends.
Roll into a ball and push into mooncake mould that’s dusted with some koh flour.
Press in lightly to form the shape. Knock out the imprinted mooncake.
And you have your mooncake! Chill in fridge for at least 20 minutes before serving.

Note: The weight of snowskin and filling depends on which mould you use. Try to stick to a ratio of 40% skin weight and 60% filling weight, more or less.
