my moon cakes

well my moon cakes didn't turn out that well they were hard as a busicuit- i might needa add more moisture to it. O yea there was some cracking and stuff. I don't think i should follow any recipies lol they never work out for me.

Any other advice to what i should do.

masterazn.. have you ever thought there could be a variance in your oven temperature compared to what was listed in the recipe you used?? Ovens vary greatly.. especially a difference between electric and gas ovens... that could have been the case.

Can't tell from your description what went wrong. don't think I've ever had these, so don't know what they are supposed to look/taste like.

maybe I should just shut up.
