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.

Step 1
For the filling, mix the mashed Purple Sweet Potatoes (3 1/3 cups) , Milk (1/4 cup) , Powdered Confectioners Sugar (2 Tbsp) , and Butter (2 Tbsp) together in a bowl and leave to cool. Roll the filling into small balls and chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Step 2
For the dough skin, combine Sweet Glutinous Rice Flour (2 1/2 Tbsp) and Snowskin Flour (1 cup) in a large bowl and set aside.
Step 3
In a pot, add water with Powdered Confectioners Sugar (3 1/2 Tbsp) and Crisco (1 1/2 Tbsp) . Bring to boil until crisco melted, stir with a hand whisk.
Step 4
Pour the hot liquid mixture into the flour and use a rubber spatula to stir mixture to a soft dough and leave to cool. Then knead the dough again to smooth, add more flour to it if the dough is still too sticky.
Step 5
Measure dough to 21 grams, about 14-15 pieces and wrap in the sweet potato ball. Roll it into ball shape and dust with some flour. Press firmly into the mold, remove and store in an airtight container.
