Purple Sweet Potato Snowskin Mooncakes

How time flies! Mooncake Festival is fast approaching! Since I like sweet potatoes very much, why not add it into my mooncake’s recipe too. I used purple sweet potato and it really gives a nice natural color. The texture is very soft and not too dry because of less icing sugar but butter and milk are added.
