Snow Skin Mooncakes

I'm quite hooked on snow skin mooncakes lately. They are much easier to prepare than those baked ones, and yummy too! Thursday evening, I decided to do another batch of snow skin mooncakes-Pandan & Coffee. I use the Kwong Cheong Thye (KCT) recipe since I bought the Fried Glutinous Rice Flour & the White Lotus Paste there. I'm very happy with the Snow Skin Pandan Mooncakes, but the Snow Skin Coffee Mooncakes were a bit disappointing as there was not much coffee taste & fragrant.




Modified Recipe (Original provided by KCT)
(According to the recipe: Makes 9 regular mooncakes-90g skin + 120g paste, or 20 mini mooncakes-30g skin dough + 60g paste)
Ingredients:
Snow Skin Dough
150g Fried Glutinous Rice Flour
200g Icing Sugar
65g Shortening
150g Cold Drinking Water

1/2 tsp pandan paste
1/2 tsp coffee extract

Method:
1. Sift fried glutinous rice flour and icing sugar together.
2. Add shortening.
3. Add water and mix well into a dough.
4. Divide the dough into two portion, one weighing 244g, the other weighing 305g there or about.
5. Add 1/2 tsp pandan paste to the bigger dough (305g) and 1/2 tsp coffee paste to the other dough (244g).
6. Knead well and ensure that the paste is well mixed with the doughs.
7. Let the dough rest for 20 minutes.
8. Divide each dough into a portion of 61g. You should get 4 doughs for the coffee and 5 doughs for the pandan.

Lotus Fillings
Coffee Paste

360g White Lotus Paste
25g Pine Nuts (toasted)
1 tsp Coffee Paste

Pandan Paste
450g White Lotus Paste
30g Melon Seeds (toasted)
1 tsp Pandan Paste

Method:
1. Under each individual paste, mix the flavoured paste well with the white lotus paste.
2. Add the seeds/nuts to the paste and mix well.
3. Divide the dough into 96g each, 4 portions for coffee and 5 portions for pandan.
4. Flatten a pandan snow skin dough, place a ball of pandan paste and push the paste against the dough.
5. Wrap up the mooncake and roll into a ball.
6. Place the ball into the mould and press until a flat surface is achieved.
7. Knock out the shaped mooncake from the mould by lightly knocking in all directions with one hand and using the other hand to catch the dislodged mooncake.
8. Immediately chill the mooncakes in an airtight container.

祝大家,中秋节快乐! Happy Mid-Autumn Festival to all!

Hi Grace,
*shy*shy* I'm so-so only. I don't make my own paste for sure. So with the ready made paste, how bad can they turn out? :p
Wish you a happy mid-autumn festival too!
