Fuzhou Dou Yong Mochi Mooncake 福州豆蓉麻糬月饼

I just love Fuzhou pastry. Love the layering crust, flaky and melt in your month kind of pastry. And the best thing is NO egg glazing needed on this. This round I am working on the mochi filling. Please check out my last batch of Fuzhou pastry mooncke here.  I flattened it a bit more compare to the previous one, which caused the pastry looks absolutely stunning and extremely thin. Though the previous pastry looks thicker, it is as flaky and yummy. Please read on for more.

This Fuzhou pastry is actually more easier to handle compare to other recipe. There's nothing to fear of ! So, may the little project begin.
