Chia Seed Black Sesame Snowskin Mooncake ~ 2014


After my post on Black Sesame Ice Cream, here comes my Black Sesame Chia Seed Snowskin Mooncakes.  This is my first attempt using the KCT premix snowskin mooncake flour and the mooncakes turned out soft.  The dough being not oily was easy to handle as well.  These snowskin mooncakes stayed soft even after storing in the fridge for 4 days.







Made some multicoloured ones as well.  They do look cute and petite.


Recipe for Chia Seed Black Sesame Snowskin Mooncake (adapted from 'here')
    Ingredients                                                                  


    • 25 gm kao fun (cooked glutinous rice flour)
    • 115 gm KCT pinpe Premix Powder
    • 25 gm icing sugar
    • 23 gm shortening
    • 150 ml water boiled with pandan/screwpine leaves
    • 1.1/2 tsp Chia seeds (more if preferred)
    • 400 gm black sesame paste (store bought)
    • extra kao fun for dusting
    Method
    1. Combine kao fun and KCT premix in a medium bowl, mix well.
    2. In a pot, add 150 ml pandan water, icing sugar and shortening, boil till shortening has melted, stir well with a hand whisk.
    3. Pour the hot liquid into the flour, add in the Chia seeds and use a spatula to stir to a soft dough. Leave dough to cool and rest for about 15 to 20 mins.  Lightly knead dough to smooth, add in some kao fun if dough is sticky.
    4. Divide dough into 25 gm pieces, roll into a ball, flatten by hand or use a rolling pin, put a ball of filling and wrap up into a ball.  Filling is 30 gm per piece.
    5. Place ball of dough into the mould, press, and unmould.
    6. Keep snowskin mooncakes in the fridge, covered, in a container with a piece of paper towel on top to prevent condense water from dripping onto the mooncakes.  These mooncakes stayed soft even on the fourth day.
    7. Yield : 13 to 14 mooncakes depending on the size of the mould.
