Passion Fruit Snow Skin Mooncake [2013]

A lovely natural yellow colour snow skin mooncake using fruit juice.  I used passion fruits for the colour, fragrance and tangy taste.  It's not necessary to add essence.
I used this ping pei skin to wrap Apple flavour mooncake paste [store bought]. Couldn't take cross section pictures of these mooncakes cos' they are for giveaways [will try to take the pictures at my friend's place].  However, I got to try the taste of the ping pei skin from the smaller mooncakes which I made from leftover dough.  It's good.

[makes 5 pieces - dough weighs 300 gm] 
90 gm cooked glutinous flour [kao fun]
75 gm icing sugar
90 ml iced passion fruit juice [about 2 passion fruits, add some water]*
20 gm shortening
* press out the juice, discard the seeds and add more water if necessary to obtain about 90 ml liquid.  Refrigerate until required.
  1. Sift icing sugar with kao fun into a mixing bowl.
  2. Rub in shortening with your finger tips until fine grains formed.
  3. Stir in the iced cold passion fruit juice/water.  Mix and combine into a soft dough.
  4. Cover and leave aside to rest for about 30 minutes.
  5. Roll into a long log and cut into 5 equal portions [about 60 gm/piece].
  6. Roll each piece into a ball and flatten it slightly.  Use it to wrap any filling of your choice.
  7. Roll into a ball, press neatly into mooncake mold.  Knock out to dislodge the ping pei mooncake and place in a plastic casing.
  8. Chill ping pei mooncake in the refrigerator.

    Notes:Any excess or leftover ping pei skin can be combined and use to make smaller ping pei mooncakes.

Thanks Veronica, my greetings to you too. These mooncakes are good both the pastes and pastry. My nephews enjoyed it very much and have to 'control' lest they over eat other people's share.
