 我因为之前都没有做过月饼,所以希望这个中秋能与各式各样的月饼打交道,哈哈!
今天先让这个五彩缤纷的冰皮月饼和大家说一声:
"嗨! 初次见面,请多多指教!"
I'm really excited to learn all kind of mooncakes as I never make it before. Let my first colourful snowskin mooncake meet everyone and say "Hi!" to you all :)

冷藏后的冰皮(以下)比较上镜,口感更QQ! 
After chilled (photo below) snowskin mooncake look more pretty than 
before chilled (photo above) and more QQ or springy texture as well.

Lotus Paste Mooncake Biscuit 香化饼/公仔饼

我欣赏中秋节期间各式各样美丽的月饼和精美饼盒。 不过不太爱吃月饼,感觉月饼就是一个字"甜"。
但是在烘焙的世界里不是应该不断地尝试和学习吗? 由其是这样的传统食品。
选来了这个不太甜的香化饼/公仔饼做我人生的第一款月饼。
接下来还要挑战烤和冰皮的月饼。这次除了挑战之外, 更重是支持博友Fion第一期的Best Recipe八月份主题“月饼”
感谢博客密友的食谱分享,让我能快乐的小鱼共度中秋,哈哈!
