Mid-Autumn Festival (known as Mooncake Festival) is one of the most important traditional celebrations in China and several other countries across Asia. The occasion is celebrated by delicious dinners and gathering to appreciate the moon – as, on the eighth month of the Chinese lunisolar calendar, the moon is believed to be at its brightest and fullest. Mooncake, a round-shaped delicacy that envelopes a sweet filling, is a must-have during this festival.
Like traditional mooncakes, snowy mooncakes are famous for their non-baked, mochi-feel texture. This much-loved, trendy rabbit-shaped mooncake recipe was inspired by the jade rabbit – the main character in ancient Mid-Autumn stories and a symbol of the pureness and brightness of the moon.
