Pandan Sesame Mooncake - 2014


Just want to share with you pictures of the moonies that I made during the weekend.  I'm not going to type out the recipe for it's the same recipe using the skin dough for the traditional baked mooncakes.  As for the filling, it's store bought pandan lotus paste and I just mixed in some lightly toasted black sesame  and melon seeds.  You can click  'here' for the recipe and method of assembling this mooncake.
