Tiramisu Snow Skin Mooncakes

Tiramius Snow Skin Mooncakes - likebyregina

I am going to make Tiramisu Snow Skin Mooncakes for this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival. A coffee jelly (almost like a gummy texture) is wrapped with mascarpone cheese filling. You can expect the perfect balance of espresso and chocolate, ending with a subtle rum flavour. No cooking is needed, and the espresso snow skin can maintain chewy, soft, and mochi-like after 3-4 days in the freezer.

Crispy Shrimp Toast

Shrimp Toast is all about its crispy crust, and golden-brown shell, with the perfect amount of bouncy, chewy shrimp paste. A flavorful mixture of ground shrimp is spread onto slices of white bread. You can then air-fry, pan-fry, or like what we are doing today – deep-fry them. I normally like to pair it with the Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, but I was out of that at home. I used Kewpie Mayo with sprinkles of paprika instead, and it turned out surprisingly delicious.

Classic Mango Cream Mochi

Mochi is probably the easiest and most fun dessert to make, as long as you don’t get them to stick on your hands. As mango season has just arrived in Vancouver, it is the perfect time for us to make these classic Mango Cream Mochi.

It can also be easily customized for vegan preferences.
