Attempted this little pigs for the last attempt, using the original mooncake recipe. Felt that the version of Maple Syrup makes the dough slightly drier and the chocolate version too. Perhaps the Coco powder could have been a reason too.
Today I made Chocolate Piggy and Original Piggy, both recipe from Christine's Recipes, just adding a teaspoon of chocolate essence as I do not want the coco powder to 'dry' out the dough.
