This is my last mooncake post for Mooncake Festival that is tomorrow. I made Green Tea Snowskin Mooncake with another type of snowskin flour (Pinpe Premix Powder) from Kwong Cheong Thye (广祥泰) that comes with a recipe. The snowskin dough is very easy to handle. In the beginning, you'll find that the dough is quite oily after boiling the liquid. But you'll be surprised that the dough is not oily at all after it has cooled down and the texture is very smooth like Japanese mochi. I've added some green tea powder in the boiling water to get its natural colour and you can get the taste of mild green tea fragrant flavour with the combination of the green tea lotus paste ..... simply delicious. I will definitely want to use this snowskin flour for the next Mid-Autumn Festival for sure.
