Mooncake Cookies With Green Tea Paste

i had some leftover green tea paste and an almost full can of golden syrup so i digged for recipes so that i could use them up! and i found the perfect one! a modified version of piggy mooncakes. haha cos i made them look like tau sar piah and i added green tea paste into the dough. the outer crust recipe was taken from Do What I Like. and it's really quite simple just that i found handling the dough rather challenging cos it's really gluely and sticky! just make sure you have have more flour for dusting.

but i'm glad the end product turned out good and pretty too. he says it could be less sweet but overall he liked it and found it quite special! and he ate quite a few in that one day haha. enjoy the pics :)

i used lyles golden syrup.

green tea paste.

mixture of syrup, oil and alkaline water.

make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and slowly pour the syrup mixture in as you stir.

and you get sticky dough which i then wrapped up with paste.

nice brown colour :)
