5 Set aside Matcha Mung Bean Paste to cool completely (slightly cover the paste with a plate to prevent the outer layer from drying). You may use it to make your mooncakes once it has cooled down. (Update for storage: Put paste in container and keep in freezer for later use. Return frozen paste to room temperature before using. Do not keep the paste refrigerated as it will become dry.)
