Monopoly tarts

While making my Chinese New Year pineapple tarts this year, I decided to make a mini batch of green tea tart just to play around. It gets really boring when I made the same ol' same ol' every single year. I made some really horrible homemade red bean paste to go with it.

My mom joined in the fun when she saw the greenish dough. We ended up with our own green tea tart Monopoly!

My mom made this leaf...

...but my leaf is nicer ;p Hotdog turned out weird, and the rat ...HAHAHA I'm just bad at this.

Since most of the shape have the red bean covered, I wanted something which will expose the red bean. Got to try and test the different types of wrapping. From a globe to just simple shapes. The paste dried up making it kind of cookie texture. Not too bad actually.

The one on the left is a dice, but can anyone guess what is it on the left? My mom was so proud of it... looks really messy to me.

A large bow for the race winner! This was an extra large tart because the remaining flour wasn't enough. My mom combined it to make something bigger.
