I went crazy last year, and made about 100 Snowskin Mooncakes of all kinds of designs and flavours to give away on my first attempt! I only managed to post the Baileys Snowskin Mooncakes with Black Sesame Paste ( 百利酒冰皮月饼 ) the last time due to time constraint. Well foodies, here’s sharing with you our Strawberry Snowskin Mooncakes with White Lotus Paste ( 草莓白莲蓉冰皮月饼 )!

Made from fresh fruit juice, the snowskin gives a mild fragrance compared to those made purely from food colouring. You may add a little strawberry essence if you like, but it is optional. The snowskin is refreshing, and the feedback we got was certainly very encouraging, with Strawberries topping our chart! Try making and let us know what you think! * You can buy the mooncake ingredients from baking stores like Phoon Huat ( 奋发 ).

  12. Shirley, I love any dessert or treat where there is fruit involved.I love this recipe. What is Hongkong flour?

    1. Hong Kong Flour is a type of super soft flour used for making steamed buns. Adding this would be a bonus to achieve a softer texture tho it’s optional. xoxo

    Kisses, Paola.
