Durian Snowskin Mooncake (Olive oil)

This year I am seeking for a healthier version of snowskin mooncakes for my family.  

As I prefer the texture to be like Goodwood Hotel's, I will experiment making Durian Snowskin Mooncake to see whether I can achieve that.

I attended a class many years ago and the chef told me that in order for my bakes to last longer, I need to cook down the durian puree.

Thus for this recipe, the fillings looks not yellowish is because I used cooked durian puree.
