Year of the Rabbit Mooncakes

One good thing about being wrong about the date of Chinese New Year, I had an extra day to make my mooncakes.  Click here for the recipe.  But, as usual, I can't follow a recipe to save my life...even my own recipes! 

My Year of the Rabbit variations: instead of straight wheat flour I used a mix of rice flour, coconut flour, and white whole wheat flour.  And in my red bean filling, I added a dash of ginger syrup and powdered ginger for some added zing.  They are in the oven as I type, we'll see how they turn out.

  3. @Jenn, they were yummy. The dough, for some reason, puffed up during baking and when they flattened out again, the design was not as apparent. But they tasted great!
