Snowskin Mooncake

Tested premix snowskin mooncake's easy...but abit after asking few friends, i tried making them from scratch..thanks for all the advise from my fb gang especially Keiko...recipe adapted from her...

The following recipe makes bout 6 pieces of 63gm snowskin mooncake.
I've used 20:40 ratio, prefer thicker skin
20: skin
40: filling

Ingredients for skin:
- 32g Kou Fen (fried glutinous rice flour)
- 30g Icing Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Shortening (i used vege oil)
- 45g Cold Water (*For flavored skin, add essence or emulco to cold water / else replaced with cold fruit juice) I used peppermint and durian emulco
- Some Kou Fen for dusting
- filling in preferred flavour (used chocolate paste)

1. Sift kou fen and sugar into a mixing bowl. (*wear disposable gloves so tat dough won't stick on hand)
2. Rub shortening into 1.
3. Add cold water and mix well.
4. Knead into a smooth dough. Set aside for 15 mins.
5. While waiting, weigh filling bout 40g and rough into ball shape.
6. Divide dough into 6 portion equally and roll into ball shape.
7. Place dough in between plastic sheet and flatten into round disc.
8. Wrap the filling with the skin.
9. Dust the outer skin and press into mould.
10. Unmould and set aside. Continue with the rest of the dough and filling until finish.
11. Store in fridge for at least 4 hours before serving.
