Traditional mooncakes are much easier to make than I thought. Unlike the snowskin mooncakes, it was actually easier to find the ingredients too.

I’m definitely going to make these again next year and give them out as gifts along with the snowskin mooncakes. This amazing recipes I founded at http://kirbiecravings.com by Kirbie.
