Moon Festival Cutey Biscuits aka Gung Tzai Pheng

Moon Festival Cutey Biscuits - Red Bean Paste Fishy
I've made a batch of Gung Tzai Pheng (Moon Festival Cutey Biscuits) this year and they all turned out quite good. I experimented with various molds and found those like peach or even angkoo are the easiest to mold the biscuits as I do not have to spend time ensuring the nooks and corners of complicated shapes like goldfish or khei loon (a type of Chinese lion) are properly filled with dough. So the moral of the story is - don't buy molds that looked super cute with lots of designs on them :p

I did the angkoo one just for fun cause GFAD made some angkoo kuih using square mooncake molds :p

This biscuit is quite easy peasy but just tedious in terms of having to weigh the dough and fillings before assembling them. Recipe can be found here and here.

This year, Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated on 22 September. You'll still have some time left to make these cutie biscuits!


Note: There is no need to refrigerate the dough! It'll make your dough "melt".

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! I was too lazy to learn how to bake gung zai peng or mooncake. So, I just make jelly mooncake, hehe...

If I saw these, I would have bought the wooden moulds and made them, instead of making snowskin mooncakes!l!! I always loved having this when I was a kid and have missed them dearly ever since....
