Baked Mooncakes

As we have been eating mooncakes for dessert the last few nites, I did not do much baking :)Hope to be able to bake some pies and quiches this weekend for the Piggies :p

I saw some of these cute baked mooncake pastry biscuits in animal shape being sold at the shop and I could not resist them and bought some for my Piggies knowing they will surely squeal in delight upon seeing them. I used to buy these for them when they were much younger but I stopped buying them after they turned into their teens. When they thought those animal shaped mooncake biscuits are for kids only and they thought they were no longer kids then :))

There are two types, one without lotus paste and the other has plain lotus paste, red bean paste and pandan flavored lotus paste. I bought a few of each type seeing they were so cute especially the two chubby piggies ! They reminded me of my two Piggies LOL!

Those at the bottom are the traditional baked mooncakes with lotus paste and melon seeds and assorted nuts with ham and fruit peels. I love the assorted nuts one...once I started eating , I can't stop coz they are so addictive :))

assorted nuts with ham and fruit peels are
made by my friend, selling for RM10 each

these are also the assorted nuts but without ham
as you noticed the nuts are whole so
making them more chewy and you get
to taste the nuts...yummm yummy
RM 12.50

this is the normal lotus paste with duck egg yolk and melon
seeds.....also made by my friend selling for RM8.80 each

this is with plain lotus paste and melon seeds
in the shape of a gold fish....can't remember the price :))

And these pair of cute chubby piggies with plain lotus paste
truly brought back memories of
our childhood......mmmmm many years back

* that's all I bought for the coming mooncake festival and have already
started eating them everyday for dessert...hopefully
there are some left for the festival then.... :p
and I won't be sharing on mooncakes anymore :p
till next mooncake festival , 2010
