Cranberry Snowskin Mooncake ~ 蔓越莓冰皮月饼 ~ 2016


These non-baked Cranberry Snowskin Mooncakes make an ideal gift for your friends during the Mid-Autumn festival.  Making these mooncakes is not so time-consuming as you don't need to  bake them and they do look cute and pretty when made in different colours.  These Cranberry Snowskin moonies remain soft and chewy even after being chilled in the fridge for four days.





Cranberry Snowskin Mooncake  ~   蔓越莓冰皮月饼  2016

Ingredients  
  • 100 gm kao fun
  • 100 gm  icing sugar (sifted)
  • 32 gm Crisco shortening
  • 125 ml ice water  (boil 1 cup of water with some pandan leaves, strain and leave
  •  in the fridge)
  • 350 gm cranberry lotus paste (storebought)
  • a drop or two of pink food colouring
Method
  1. Sift kao fun and icing sugar into a mixing bowl.
  2. Rub in shortening till it resembles bread crumbs.
  3. Measure 125 ml chilled pandan water, add in a drop or two of pink colouring, mix well. Gradually add in chilled pink coloured water and mix to form a smooth dough.  (You may need more or a bit less water).  Knead lightly till it doesn't stick to your hands and is malleable.   Cover and let rest for about 20 mins.
  4. For a 50 gm mould, divide dough into 14 portions of 24 gm each.  Roll into a ball.
  5. Divide paste into 25 gm each.  Roll into a ball.
  6. Lightly flatten the dough with a rolling pin, the edges thinner than the centre, put in the ball of paste, wrap it up and  place it into the mould.  Stamp out the snowskin mooncake.
  7. Place snowskin mooncakes  into a container and put a piece of paper kitchen  towel over the snowskin mooncakes to absorb any condensation.  Cover the snowskin mooncakes and chill in the refrigerator.  
  8. Yield :  14 snowskin mooncakes

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.

Curry leaf Salted Egg Cookies ~ 咖喱叶咸蛋曲奇 ~ CNY 2017

I was quite sceptical to try this Salted Egg cookie recipe with an addition of curry leaves but I was surprisingly pleased with the end product.   It is indeed difficult to describe the taste of these cookies except that they do have an appetising flavour.  But one thing for sure, the sweet smell of salted egg and curry leaves will linger in your kitchen for quite a while.  Check it out here for a simple and easy Salted Egg cookie recipe.

German Butter Cookies CNY 2015 ~ 德国牛油曲奇

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.
