Molasses Mooncakes Recipe


1 cup butter

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/3 cups white sugar

1/2 cup butter or margarine

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup molasses

11 8-inch round or round (1-inch wide) pans

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

4 tablespoons white sugar for garnish


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Mix together the butter and flour. Pour into prepared cookie sheets.

Roll the chocolate filling so that it is 1 to 2/3 inch thick. Place layer on the prepared cookie sheet.

Perform your own frosting to match the coloration of the filling. Blend cream cheese, sugar, butter and vanilla.

Press a cup of the molasses onto the filling, pressing gently. Place on the bottom of a greased 9 inch round pan or ring mold.

Place the round cookie layer on top of the filling. Place pieces of ribbon in a shallow pan or mold. Add pieces of caramel candy and arrange around the edges of the circle.

Arrange other layers on top of the filling and enjoy delicious tea-light frosting!

Really good & very easy. Shortly after setting this out, I noticed that the casing was different. I didn't know how to tell--my dogs wouldn't have let me know unless I told them so. But I was smart and made sure to tell her by putting the dill horseradish points instead of ends. But honestly, I didn't think they would be all that picky--they're pretty docile creatures. But mine were impatient and wouldn't take as much as reported. Maybe it was because I used unflavored dental floss--I don't think it matters which way you slice it. Either way, it's good to be extra cautious around these things.
