A Traditional Mid-Autumn Favourite: Fish Doll Mooncakes, Kung Chai Peng 公仔饼
These lovely fish doll mooncakes are a type of traditional baked mooncake biscuits, also known as Kung Chai Peng 公仔饼. These mooncake biscuits are made entirely from the dough forming the outer skin of a mooncake. They’re sweet, chewy and comes in various fun shapes. Above all, they’re fun to make. A perfect project to do with kids in the kitchen too.
A Twist To The Traditional Doll Mooncakes Recipe
Traditionally, this mooncake biscuit is made without filling. However, I have chosen to add a chicken floss filling in it. For added crunch, toasted melon seeds, sesame seeds and walnuts are mixed together in the dough pastry. The mooncake biscuits are then shaped into pretty fish dolls and baked to perfection. These mooncake biscuits certainly make a GREAT addition to the coming Mid-Autumn Festival celebration.
As always, ENJOY!
