I decided this year to try my hand at making moon cakes for the Autumn Moon Festival. As I began to read different recipes, I realized that traditional moon cakes are made with a dollop of red bean paste!
All righty then!
We used grape jelly!!! Hehe!
I wasn't going to make these cakes from (scratch no less), only to have NO ONE eat them, so grape jelly it was!
The girls were very excited and couldn't wait to help.
The boys, well let's just say, they asked to be called when I needed help taste testing them! Heh!
All in all, we had a blast! We made the dough...
had fun rolling it into little balls...
and topping them off with our not so traditional but oh so yummy jelly!!!
We brushed 'em with an egg wash and popped 'em in the oven!
They turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself...
and I even got a half up thumb from my sensory eater!! Whoo Hoo!
Happy Autumn Moon Festival!!
