Date Lotus Jelly Mooncakes

After having making both baked and snowskin mooncakes last week, there was still some leftover date lotus paste left. Putting nothing to waste, and having only 150g paste left, I just made it as a filling in the jelly mooncake. I boiled red dates and dried longan for the outer layer. I love the end result. The jelly mooncake was just lovely, it was transparent and looked like crystal They were just refreshing and very fragrant. Great to make these jellies as a giveaway gift and also a perfect dessert for the warm weather.
