What is olive kernel and is there a substitute for it? What is it called in Chinese? I'm in Australia and it mgiht be hard to find. Thank you very much!

When do you add in the oil for the filling? When do you combine (A) and (B) together? How many normal size mooncakes does this makes? Thanks again....

You can use kuachi瓜子 to substitute olive kernel榄仁.

Sorry. This recipe was written in Chinese, and there is English translation error. I have corrected it.

Filling approx. 130g each, skin approx.40g each, makes 9-10 (depend on the size of the mould used).

Lovely~ I'm looking for bingpi mooncake recipe~ but to make the skin, can i substitute the shortening with butter? or any substitution is possible?

Shortening is tasteless, it cannot be substitute with butter. It is available at baking ingredient shops.
