Fly Me To The Moon (Baking mooncakes, Part One)

The Mooncake Festival is drawing near. Thought this would be an appropriate time to add another new baking experience to my growing resume.

So here's my first baked mooncake, aka Mini Lotus Paste Mooncake.

Note: I find the skin to be a little too tough. I actually burned the bottom of some of the minis and had to use the knife to scrap off the burned bits. As for lotus paste, I discard any bravery to make my own and bought it from the store. Overall, the end result was not bad. But I have another different recipe for making mooncake pastry which I shall try this weekend.
