More Snow-Skin Mooncakes

Snow-Skin mooncakes, round 2! After my 1st attempt, I made this again yesterday. I didn't add any colourings to the white lotus paste fillings, just left it plain. For the green tea fillings, I added matcha powder to the balanced dough and got a nice green skin, much better than the first time :-)

I still prefer the white skin, looks so neat and clean.


Took out another set of my disney cutters, Chip N Dale, and made these for the kids. DD1 likes Dale, which is the one with a smaller nose and DS2 picked Chip.

This time round, I made it slightly bigger, please see notes below.
