Osmanthus Oolong Tea Snow Skin Mooncake ~ 桂花乌龙冰皮月饼 ~ 2015


Festivals come and go and the Mid-Autumn Mooncake festival is no exception.  Honestly, I'm running out of ideas what sort of flavours that I want to create for my moonies this year.  I love the design of this mould and since I could get hold of it from a good friend, and with the Oolong tea paste that I had, didn't hesitate to make these snowskin mooncakes with Osmanthus flavour.  The Osmanthus fragrance complements the tea infused lotus paste perfectly and is indeed a good combination.

  11. Yield :  10 pieces 
  12. Place a piece of kitchen paper towel over the mooncakes to absorb any water from condensation, keep in an airtight container, chill in the fridge.  These mooncakes stayed fresh for 4 days.

Scallion Oil Chicken ~ 葱油鸡

From Spring Onion pancake , I'm sharing with you a Scallion or Spring onion chicken dish today.  This is more or less like a poached chicken dish except that it's laden with a sauce of scallion oil, chicken broth and Chinese wine.  This dish can be served as it is or chilled in the fridge before serving, Scallion Oil Chicken ~   葱油鸡 Ingredients 2 whole leg chicken, approx 600 gm 4 to 5 stalks of spring onions Ginger, sliced and minced 1 Tbsp Shaoxing wine 6 Tbsp vegetable oil Light soya sauce, salt and a bit of sugar to taste Method Season the chicken with some salt, set aside.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle. I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more! Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish), Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually ,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwr

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
