Plum Blossom Flaky Mooncake 梅花酥
Monday, October 2, 2017
This will be my last round of mooncake baking for this coming mid-autumn festival! I've managed to clear all the 2.5kg lotus paste filling I've bought. Not a lot of quantity but still more than enough to bless some to my friends and family. ^0^ This batch of 梅花酥 with osmanthus oolong tea filling will be given to my breakfast buddies tomorrow. Hope they will like this lovely fragrant flaky mooncake! 祝大家中秋节快乐！
