Notes

Salted egg yolks can be prepared ahead of time. Make sure to store them in an airtight container and refrigerated until needed.
Cooked glutinous rice (koh fun) can be prepared at home if unavailable in the stores. Simply cook the flour in a pan without oil over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Cooked till the four turns light yellow. Remove and let it cool down completely.
Ratio of skin: filling really depends on own preference. Some may prefer more filling while others may prefer more snow skin. The lesser skin you use, the more filling you're going to need and vice versa.
Place the snow skin mooncakes, seam-side down when moulding them in a mooncake mould.
These snow skin mooncakes can be stored in freezer for up to a few weeks. Just remove from freezer to chiller for about 2 hours until they are soften.

Its optional. You can choose to put the whole egg yolk as well. But you will need to cut down on the paste.
