Charcoal Sesame Snowskin Mooncake

Hubby wanted to have some sesame lotus mooncakes so I decided to make  a batch of Charcoal Sesame Snowskin Mooncakes. 

So here is presenting my yummilicious mooncake... 

Charcoal Sesame Snowskin Mooncake
makes about 24 pieces using a 50g mooncake mould (22g dough : 25g filling)

600g sesame lotus paste
50g melon seeds
25g kao fen (糕粉 or cooked glutinous rice flour)
100g snowskin premix flour
1 tsp bamboo charcoal powder
25g icing sugar
25g shortening
125g pandan water
extra kao fen for dusting

1. Mix melon seeds to the sesame lotus paste filling. Divide the sesame lotus paste filling into 25g each. Shape each into balls. Set aside.

2. Boil about 250g water with 3 pandan leaves until water is fragrant from the pandan leave. Measure out 125g water and set aside.

3. Combine kao fen, snowskin premix flour and charcoal powder in a big bowl and set aside. 

4. Place icing sugar and shortening in a pot and pour in pandan water. Stirring using a handwhisk, boil the mixture until the shortening has melted.

5.  Pour the hot liquid into the flour mixture. Using a rubber spatula, stir mixture to form a soft dough and leave to cool.

6. When the dough is cool enough to handle, knead the dough (I wore a powder free and food grade glove) until smooth.

7.  Divide the snowskin dough into 22g each. Shape each into balls and set aside. 

8. Using lightly floured hand, flatten the snowskin dough into a round disc. Place a sesame lotus filling ball in the middle of the flattened dough. Enclose the sesame lotus filling inside the snowskin dough and roll them into smooth balls. (I did not flour my hand as I'm wearing a powder free and food grade glove)

9. Place each ball into a lightly floured mooncake mould and press it gently until all the edges of the mould are well-filled with the pastry. Unmould and store in an airtight container.

10. Chill snowskin mooncakes for a few hours before consuming.
