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.

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

  • 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

Vietnamese Caramelised Chicken ~ 越南焦糖鸡

This is a quickie and delicious chicken dish, braised in caramelised sauce.  The ingredients are not too difficult to find and if you can't find kaffir lime leaves, you can omit them altogether.  This dish serves well with white rice and a side veggie dish.  Try it!

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
