Pandan Snowskin Lotus Paste Moonie

This is my children's favourite. The snowskin moonie is one of easier moonie to make and I've been making this eversince I learned how to make moonies.
The recipe was shared by a blogger (gan55) at one of the food forums I frequent.
Thanks J for this :-)

Here's sharing the recipe with you .....
(lotus paste 20 gm, skin 20 gm ....makes about 20 moonies)

200 gm icing sugar
150 gm kao fen (fried glutinous rice flour)
65 gm shortening
150 ml boiled water, cool
1 tsp condensed milk
1 tsp pandan paste

Sieve kao fen and icing sugar together.

Add in the shortening and condensed milk and rub the ingredients together till you get a crumbly texture.

Mix in the pandan paste to the water and add them to the crumbly texture and knead till a smooth dough is formed.(You need not add in all the water).

Allow the dough to stand for 30 minutes covered before moulding.

Weigh out 20 gm dough skin and 20 gm lotus paste and wrap the paste with the skin and then roll it into a ball.

Transfer the dough ball to the moonie mould to make the moonie print.

Dust the mould with kao fen if you find the dough is sticking to the mould.

Put them in the fridge for about 2 hours before serving.

Hi, may i know where you get the pandan paste? For condensed milk is it the same as evaporated milk? Would like to use this recipe as my first attempt at mooncakes :)

Hi quek
You can get pandan paste from the bakery section of the supermarket.
Bottle is just like the vanilla essence bottle except that it's green in color. As for condensed milk's the thick sweetened milk ...not the same as evaporated milk. Wishing you success in making this.

hth :-)
