Kou fien is cooked glutinous rice flour. Do not use plain glutinous rice flour. If you can not find kou fien, glutinous rice flour can be pan fried with some pandan.
Several flavors of filling may be used, so long as the combined weight is 20 grams.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before eating. Store in refrigerator for up to a week.
If you wish to flavor or color the mooncakes, add a few drops of flavoring or food coloring to the water and mix well before adding to the flour mixture.
Traditional molds: Tap the mold firmly on each side to loosen the mooncake. Turn the mold upside down and firmly bang it on the edge of the counter (on a towel) to remove the mooncake. Be sure to keep one hand below the cake to catch it as it falls out.
Press molds: Press firmly against table to shape mooncake. Gently release mooncake into box.
