Method:
1) Transfer all the flour from the sieve to a mixing bowl. Add coconut milk and condensed milk, mix until combined before adding in melted butter. For an extra smooth, strain the mixture through a sieve directly into a stainless steel plate, and transfer to the steamer. Cover with safe-heat aluminum foil, and steam for 25 minutes over medium low heat. Allow to rest for a few minutes and flatten it with a rolling pin until well incorporated. Place dough to be easy to knead inside a food bag and simply add food coloring, one drop at a time for one dough and knead until well combined then wearing gloves is necessary.

2) Divide the snow skin dough into 8 equal portions. Pat each into a round and place a portion of the filling in the center, wrap them tightly and secure them. Sprinkle with cooked glutinous rice flour. Place it in the floured mooncake mould, tap for 2 to 3 times, and press the mooncake out. Transfer to the serving plate covered with plastic wrap or airtight container and refrigerate in the fridge for 2 hours until needed. Do not stored in the freezer. and the snowskin will become hard, freezing is not advised quality point.
