Peach Nerikiri (Sweet Bean Paste Confections) - Easy Wagashi to Make for Dolls' Festival
Sakura mochi are the traditional sweets to serve and are always nice, but since Doll's Day festival is also Peach Festival, I thought a peach-themed treat would be fun to try.
Your cooking time will differ depending on the water in the white bean paste.
Remember that the dough will stiffen when chilled.
When you shape the dough using plastic wrap, and the dough sticks to the wrap when you try to remove it, that means that there is still too much water in the dough.
This will look very peach-like if you marbleize the pink and white portions so there is no clear boundary. Recipe by Choco makaron
