Natural Colour - Crystal Snowskin Mooncakes





Crystal snowskin mooncake is actually pandan flavour [green colour] pin pi.
The original recipe comes from Yum Yum Magazine No. 80.  The filling used in this recipe is coconut paste. Instead of coconut paste, I used pandan lotus seed paste [store bought] for the filling as I was lazy to prepare it. 
The recipe below is only half portion of the original recipe as I was making some others at the same time.

Basic Ingredients for the Snowskin [Pin Pi] - slightly modified the method
[makes 70 x 5  pieces]
120 gm kao fun [fried glutinous flour]
70 gm icing sugar
1 tbsp shortening
175 ml pandan juice*
* [blend 3 big pandan leaves with about 200 ml.  strain and chill until required]
Filling - store bought
[100-110 gm x 5 mooncake paste]
500-550 gm pandan lotus seed mooncake paste
some toasted melon seeds
  • mix toasted melon seeds with the pandan lotus seed paste.  Divide into 5 equal portions [70 gm].   Roll into a ball.  Chill until required.   This can be prepared earlier and chill in the fridge.
  1. Sift kao fun and icing sugar in a bowl.
  2. Rub in shortening until it resembles bread crumbs.  
  3. Pour in chilled pandan juice.  Knead into a soft and smooth dough.  Cover to rest for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Divide pin pi into 5 portions.  Roll into a ball.
  5. Flatten dough in between plastic sheet and wrap filling.  Shape into round.  Coat dough with some kao fun and press into a mooncake mould.
  6. Knock out the mooncake and place in mooncake container, chill it in the refrigerator before serving.

Kimmy, maybe next year I should try a hand at making mooncakes :) This pandan flavour one is my favourite.

Hi Phong Hong, this year I wasn't in a mood to make many varieties. Too many recipes to do and AI'm at a lost. Pin Pi mooncakes are nice. Cool and soothing if the filling is not too sweet that's why I added the savoury tau sar. Will update the photos later.

Hi Kimmy, oh I can see the image of the mooncakes a pair of love birds 鸳鸯 ! I'm also very lost seeing so many varieties of mooncakes .. so many beautiful designs. I'm really blessed to learn from you and other blogger pals. At least I could make my 1st mooncakes ^-^!

Kimmy said...

Hi Jeannie, I used this tau sar to mix with cream cheese for the filling. This year I skipped this. Too many varieties, spoilt for choice. These days we can make mooncakes anytime.
