Red Bean Paste Mooncake ~ 红豆蓉月饼 (2016)


Mooncake festival is here again.   And looks like I've been collecting and tempted to collect more and more mooncake moulds each year.  I love this 'Fook' or  Prosperity mould which was a gift from a good friend and I made these mooncakes with homemade red bean paste.
