Mooncakes are a common treat shared during the Mid Autumn Festival. Many Asian cultures have a version of this cake with a myriad of fillings. This version is based on a Cantonese style with a thin crisp crust and sweet red bean filling. Traditionally there may be a salted egg yolk in the center to symbolize the full autumn moon, but we have swapped that for a dried apricot. Often, mooncakes are highly decorated using a press or a stamp. We will form them by hand but you can press in any fun symbol you’d like on top. Gift as a gift or share with a pot of tea and loved ones to celebrate one of the biggest holidays in the Asian calendar.
