Crystal Mooncake ~ this is a Cream Cheese flavour (水晶月饼~芝士口味的噢...^^)

We had a leadership dinner and meeting with all our leaders in IBO Centre recently. Food is prepared by a good cook among the leaders. We had all the goodies like Mee sua with chicken soup, BBQ pork, fried hakka beehoon, chocolate mousse cake, Wolf berries(ji zhi) konyaku~this is so nice, fried chicken wings, seafood tofu and lot more.
This is the one that caught me...Cream cheese pudding with mixed fruits. I had this long time ago when a friend came back for Canada. He (JJ) made this and all of us love it. I misses this pudding a lot...^O^ so I am going to make it but I present it in a different look.



~this is the way I present it....kind of special right....^^~ 



~the cream cheese gives the pudding a really nice milky colour~



~This one is with the mixed fruits filling~



~This one is with the whole red bean filling~



~I like the taste of this cream cheese and red bean flavour too~

Cream cheese Crystal mooncake
with mixed fruits

Ingredients for mixed fruits filling:
450g water
2 tsp agar-agar powder
50g sugar
2 pcs pandan leaves knotted
1 tbsp condensed milk
some mixed fruits or some chopped peaches with chopped cherries

To do the filling:
1) In a saucepan, mix agar-agar powder, sugar and salt, stir to mix.
2) Add in water, condensed milk and pandan leaves. Cooked till its boil.
3) Once mixture boils, turn of heat. Spoon mixed fruits or chopped peaches and cherries into each of the mould.
3) Pour mixture into cupcake moulds and allow to set completely.(I always put the cupcake moulds into a tray of ice cold water. This will speed up the setting time.)


~Getting the filling ready~

Ingredients for red bean filling:
250g water
200g coconut milk
2 tsp agar-agar powder
50g sugar
2 pcs pandan leaves knotted
100g cooked whole red bean~you can use red bean paste (50g) if you do not have cooked whole red bean
some cupcake moulds

To do the filling:
1) In a saucepan, mix agar-agar powder, sugar and salt, stir to mix.
2) Add in water, coconut milk, condensed milk and pandan leaves. Cooked till it boil.
3) Once mixture boils, turn of heat. Add in cooked whole red bean or red bean paste and stir with a wire whisk till smooth.
3) Pour mixture into cupcake moulds and allow to set completely.(I always put the cupcake moulds into a tray of ice cold water. This will speed up the setting time.)

Ingredients for jelly(crystal) skin:

1 litre fresh milk
5 tsps agar-agar powder
140-150g sugar
1/2 tsp salt
250g Philadephia cream cheese

To do for jelly skin:
1) In a saucepan combine agar-agar powder, sugar and salt together.
2) Add in water and bring to boil.
3) Lower down heat and add in cream cheese, stiring with a hand whisk until mixture is smooth. (Do not let this mixture boil,if you find mixture is going to bubbles, just take the saucepan off the stove). 

To assemble mooncake:
1) Pour the jelly skin mixture into jelly mould till it reaches the arrow I add in the below jelly mould.


~I love this jelly mould pattern~

2) Allow to cool till almost set.
3) Place the prepared filling in the centre of the mould.



 ~Place the mixed fruits filling in 2 of the moulds and the other 2 is red bean filling.


~This the red bean filling~

Top up with mooncake jelly skin mixture and allow to set completely, before chilling it in the fridge.



~Allow this to set before chilling in the fridge~
