Snow skin moon­cakes must be re­frig­er­ated and can last for up to a week. The con­sis­tency and taste will be very dif­fer­ent if con­sumed un­re­frig­er­ated and they may even spoil.

The name ‘snow skin’ refers to the translu­cent ap­pear­ance of the skin, which is made from pre-cooked gluti­nous rice flour.

The tex­ture of snow skin moon­cakes is rem­i­nis­cent of mochi, a sweet and chewy Ja­panese dessert made with rice flour.

Bak­ers tend to be most cre­ative with snow skin moon­cakes due to the im­mense va­ri­ety of pos­si­ble fill­ing com­bi­na­tions. They’re of­ten made in minia­ture due to the pre­mium in­gre­di­ents used.
