These little biscuits look simple

They are soft and nice

Well loved by my 2 grandchildren

They can have a few at one go

Mooncake Biscuits

200g syrup
50g peanut oil
1/2 Table spoon alkali water
300g plain flour

Egg wash-1 egg yolk beaten with 1 tsp water

1) mix all 3 liquids together
2) pour liquid into flour, mix well and leave for 40min to 4 hours
3) press dough into moulds and knock out
4) arrange on parchment lined baking trays 
5) brush with egg wash
6) bake in preheated oven of 175'C for 10-15min

I thought my grand children like the figurines
but once I baked like these
they also finished them all!

How about adding some seeds (kuaci) to the dough?
Like this?

These Mooncake biscuits are just out of the oven

It will take one or two days for them to mature 
will look shiny and nice

If you are making for adults, you may like some variations as follows:
1) wrap dough with fillings: red bean or lotus paste before pressing into the mould
2) add roasted melon seeds or kuaci to the dough for crunch effect

Katie Foong: At first I thought they like the shapes.
Once when I was busy, I just make rounds and press lightly
& put onto the baking tray to bake.
They liked it all the same.

Well, cos your biscuits are just too yummy, the little ones are just not bothered with the shapes! Actually sometimes I find it is more for adults' satisfaction! Ha..ha..
