Tết Trung Thu or Mid-Autumn Festival is an ancient festival considered “children’s day” in Vietnamese culture. It falls on the 15th day of the eighth month in the lunar calendar, which is in September or early October – this year it lands on October 1, 2020 when the fullest moon will appear. It’s day to celebrate the harvest, spend quality time with your kids – spoiling them with toys, their favorite foods, paper lanterns & treats such as mooncakes. I’m sharing my Instant Pot recipe for Bánh Dẻo Trung Thu / Snow Skin Mooncakes, the mooncake wrapper is soft and chewy (similar to mochi) with a sweet coconut flavored mung bean filling.
