Snowskin Mooncake with Truffle

I have done this in Sept, 2011 and am posting this for my reference. 
Truffles: (S$11.30/14 pcs) - 2011
Lychee Martini (S$12.50/9 pcs - 2012
Updated pricing is : S$11/12 pcs (2013)

The supplier also sell Brandy truffle. So here is my Chocolate mooncake with Brandy Truffles.

Verdict: I don't really fancy white chocolate but the hint of champagne seems stronger than those I ate before. The Brandy ones are really good, I am getting another box!

What you need:

150g glutinous fried rice flour (糕粉)
200g icing sugar
65g shortening
150g cold drinking water
1 tsp cocoa powder (optional)

Method

Sieve Flour and Icing Sugar

Add shortening

Add water, mix well until it forms a dough

Set dough aside for 20mins

Make the fillings into ball shapes each

Divide dough into small portion

Flatten dough to wrap up the fillings

Seal up dough to enclose filling completely

Press into mould

Skin: 20g
Fillings: 30g

  3. Hi Edith,

    Where did you get the rest of the ingredient eg. lian rou?

    For shortening are you using CRISCO?

    Is it from Phoon Huat?
