Heong Fah Nemo Moonies ~ 2015 香化公仔饼


The Mid-Autumn mooncake festival is fast approaching again.  And for this year, it falls on  Sunday 27th September.   I used to look forward to this festival when I was a kid and I remember that when you buy the mooncakes from the shop or restaurant, you'll be given two complimentary little Nemo moonies that come in a little red plastic 'basket'.  So why not try out this recipe and I'm sure it will be a hit amongst the kids!
