I wanted to make something special for Lunar New Year (year of the Dragon), so I made these mooncakes. I have had adzuki filling before, but I've never had mooncake, so I knew that however this recipe turned out, it would be somewhat of a surprise. After I made the pastry and filling and put them into the refrigerator, I watched some YouTube videos on how to make mooncake.... I realized then that this recipe would not be similar to what you would find in the bakery.
I used 1/2 cup of sugar, and the filling was only slightly sweet. I used a rolling pin and a little flour to roll out the pastry. I used soymilk in place of eggwash. My husband and I enjoyed this recipe, but my kids did not care for it.
*My biggest problem with this recipe is that it makes 4 times more filling than what can possibly fit into the pastry. I do not recommend this recipe for a pastry novice as the pastry is tricky to wrap around the filling balls.
