Plain Mid-Autumn Festival Cutie Lotus Paste Biscuits

These plain janes were inspired by those bought by hubby at Jusco's Mid-Autumn Fair at 1 Utama (old wing concourse). I was wondering why he bought them when I can make them myself hehehe... he told me the aroma was hard to resist as they came fresh outta oven. Using the same recipe below, I added some melon seeds into the dough and shaped them into rounds. Yummyumm!

Topping (beaten):
1 egg yolk

1. Mix dough with lotus paste until well combined.

2. Divide dough into many portions, form it into rounds or ovals depending on biscuit moulds. Dust flour in mould, then press dough into mould. Next, invert onto baking tray.

3. Bake in preheated oven at 180C for 10 mins. Remove from oven, leave to cool, and brush beaten egg on the surface evenly. Continue to bake for 10 mins until golden brown. Serve.

BTW, I finally found out why my dough sagged!!! I was too smart alec to place the dough in the fridge when in actual fact, you don't need to! Took me a couple of batches before discovering this *blush blush*
