<< Mini Butter Mooncake >>

Yeah is time to bake moonies again :) This year, I am going to tryout difference type of bake mooncakes instead....so here's the first receipe i tried:

I am using Veronica's mini butter nutty mooncake receipe. This cute receipe supposed to ve a nut inside each of e charater but i've omitted out becos I CANT FIND MY NUTs which i jus bot last night!!!!!...so end up i just mixed the lotus paste with toasted melon seeds.

I am quite pleased with the end result..thou abit burn. Cerilynn said this is more like a mooncake cookies and she like it cos the outer layer skin was crispy. Luckily the sweetness was jus right as i cutting down the sugar by 30g.
