Monncake Festival or Mid-Autumn Festival is just exactly one week away. I had some fun making these little piggies with some leftover snowskin premix flour. I was so happy to receive many “WOW” compliments from my friends when they saw these little cute and round piggies. These cute little piggies are relatively easy to make at home without much effort and can be easily packed off in pretty boxes for your loved ones especially on this festival.
- Handmade Snowskin Piggy
- Ingredients : you can use your own snowskin recipe to make these cute piggies.
- 58g snowskin premixed flour
- 13g kao fen (糕粉 – cooked glutinous rice flour)
- 12g icing sugar (sifted)
- 12g crisco/shortening
- 75g water
- 180g lotus paste, divide into 12 small balls, about 15g
- Combine kao fen and snowskin flour in a large bowl and set aside.
- In a pot, add water with icing sugar and crisco together. Bring to boil until crisco melted, stir with a hand whisk.
- Pour the hot liquid mixture into the flour and use a rubber spatula to stir mixture to a soft dough and leave to cool. Then knead dough to smooth . Add more kao fen if the dough is still too sticky.
- Divide dough into 3 portions and add little colouring (pink, green, yellow) to each dough, knead smooth again.
- Weigh dough to about 14-15g and wrap in the lotus paste filling and roll into ball shape again
