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.
