Ingredients for skin dough :
250ml homemade golden syrup
110ml corn oil
1 tspn alkaline or lye water
(combine all ingredients and mix well then set aside to rest for an hour)
430gm all purpose flour
1/4 tspn baking soda
(1) once ingredients (A) is ready to use, stir in ingredients (B) and mix to form a soft & sticky dough.
(2) then let dough set aside to rest for another an hour, divide dough into 20gm each then again set aside to rest for another 30 minutes.
Wrap red bean paste with dough then nicely sealed. Slightly coat filled dough with flour then press to fit into the mould. For wooden mould, knock from all corner to release shaped dough biscuit and place it to greased baking tray.
I kept all moulded dough refrigerated for 10 minutes before going into the oven. It will helps to keep the shape set.
Bake at 165'C for 10 minutes with oven door ajar then remove from oven, leave to cool for 10 minutes then brush with egg glazing. Again bake for another 10 minutes or till golden brown. Cooled for 10 minutes before transferring biscuits from tray.
*For dough ~ 20gm & red bean fillings ~ 25gm
*Egg glazing ~ 2 yolk mixed with 2 tspn milk
Before start shaping the dough, please check the dough usage size of your mould by gathered one 50gm size pastry dough then stuck it to the mould and try to press fit into the mould.
If extra dough appear to the end of the mould then withraw some off. Weight the dough later after its done. If its too small then add another 10gm dough, again press it to fit.
By the total figure dough you collected, for example if its 60gm then pastry dough use should be 30gm and fillings should be 30gm. Ratio 1 : 1.
