Snow skin durian moon cake

Mid autumn’s festival is round the corner and I haven’t had enough of mooncakes, particularly snowskin ones. Having a chance to explore phoon huat’s store at aljunied after bringing aunt for cataract surgery, I found a packet of mooncake pre-mix! Was looking for fried glutinous rice flour initially to follow aunty yochana’s recipe but found this treasure in the end. It was the last packet on the shelf.

So I went back and made the durian filling first. 4 boxes of durian and one 500g mix gave me about 20 small mooncakes and 6 big ones. I thought of making many small ones because I like to pop them into my mouth.

It was tedious making them! Now I know why 8 small ones are priced closely to the 4 big ones. The effort takes lotsa more time and effort than the big ones since small ones run a greater risk of having a high skin-to-filling ratio. Tried making thinner ones with muchhhh effort and after some 2 hrs, I stop trying to make them too thin. Lazy! But it takes alot effort to keep it whole and get it nicely moulded with a thin skin while the snowskin is not frozen. >.< Right, not an excuse I know. Will try aunty yochana's snowskin recipe this week. Hopefully easier to handle!
