Sun Dried Tomato Mooncake Biscuit

Gosh, here comes the mid autumn festival! This year the mooncake festival is fall on the 12th of September, Monday. Just imagine how time flies! Remember I made quite a number of goodies for the celebration on last year..... for example, Bamboo charcoal & cinnamon baked mooncake, chilled mooncake, jelly mooncake, shanghai mooncake and also fruity mooncake biscuits. So far, mooncake biscuit has the biggest request and am planning to make some more this year. Come on, let's join in for some fun!

Ingredients for pastry crust :
430gm all purpose flour/HK flour
1/4 tspn baking soda
250ml golden syrup/ honey
110ml peanut oil
1 tspn alkaline/lye water

Method :
(1) combine syrup, oil and alkaline water into a big bowl.
(2) mix well and then leave aside for an hour.
(3) next stir in flour & baking soda, mix to combine and again leave aside for another hour.
(4) finally, divide into sizes as desired and wrap in the fillings.
(5) then mould out the shape and place it to the baking tray.
(6) brush with egg glazing and bake at preheated oven 170'C for 10 mins.
(7) remove tray from oven and brush on egg glazing for the 2nd time.
(8) again bake for another 10mins at 160-170'C or untill golden brown.

There's 2 sizes for this mould and mine is the largest one.

Ingredients for Sun Dried Tomato Fillings :
500gm lotus paste
1 cup sun dried tomato, roughly chopped
2 pieces preserved kumquat, roughly chopped
3 tbsp roasted sesame seeds
(combine all ingredients and mix well to form a soft dough, then divide into the size as desired)
#the ratio for wrapping the dough is 50:50, meaning if you used 20gm of filling then the dough should be 20gam as well.

The manual moulding went pretty neat and nice. Yet, I still prefer to use the mooncake stamping mould. It's easier and quicker.

But turned out quite blur....due to longer heating time! I'm still not quite familiar with my new oven. Need some time to get along with it. :o)

#I'm sending this to Suresh & Shaz @ Muhibbah Malaysian Monday.

These look so good and I think you should sell them! The flavour is definitely much better than some of the really odd ones that are around! :)

Zoe said...

Wow! This is a great twist to the traditional mooncake. Sun dried tomatoes with lotus paste...I wonder how this combination would taste.

Claudia said...

I just had my first ever mooncake in Seattle (bean curd filling - very tasty) but as a savory person - I am yearning for your sun-dried tomato version.

Vivian Pang said...

Your mooncakes are nicely brown. In your pastry crust you are using golden syrup. Can I replace with corn syrup?

Your moon cakes are beautiful, Kristy, and the sun dried tomato filling sounds delicious. It's hard to believe that autumn is almost here.

Lovely

Biren @ roti n Rice said...

That's very creative Kristy...sun dried tomato and kumquat filling! I think I need to pay you a visit real soon. No mooncakes for me this year :(

Shirley said...

You have a great collection of molds Kristy!

ICook4Fun said...

Kristy, only you can come up with such a unique flavor. I can imagine the sweet taste of the lotus paste combine with the sourish taste of the sundried tomatoes. Great combinations.

penny aka jeroxie said...

My Little Space said...

Hi Ladies,

Have a fabulous day!

Blessings, Kristy ((hugs))
