I can guarantee that this is the easiest (and laziest) recipe for mooncakes – absolutely no baking or cooking involved! These are very untraditional, but they look awesome & taste like cookies n cream cake pops. I have a few other mooncake recipe on my site, just search “mooncake” and you’ll find my snow skin mooncake recipes and a few other no-bake mooncake recipes as well.
Mid-Autumn Festival or Tết Trung Thu is an ancient festival considered “children’s day” in Vietnamese culture. 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. Traditional mooncakes are made with a dense pastry dough and filled with various combinations of lotus seed paste, sweet red bean paste, mixed nuts, dried fruit or salted egg yolks, but today we are enjoying these gorgeous Cookies ‘n Cream Mooncakes! *Watch my 30 second Instagram recipe video here
I make 40g sized mooncakes, but you can make them a little smaller / flatter if you prefer since these are quite sweet
These should be served cold, straight from the refrigerator. Since they don’t have a skin, they can’t sit out for long, or they’ll feel greasy to the touch. You could also use this as the filling for snow skin mooncakes.
