I had too much red bean paste in my fridge and I wanted to clear them. That's why these pastries are being stuffed to their fullest!
makes 15 pieces
2 cups regular flour
1/3 cup salted butter (soften at room temperature)
1 cup cold water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp white vinegar
red bean paste
white sesame seeds
1 beaten egg
- Mix the dough ingredients together in a big bowl with a large spoon or spatula. Knead into a dough and let the dough rest for 30 minutes or more.
- Dust some flour on a clean space and roll out the dough. Divide the dough into 5 equal portions and then divide each portion into another 3 portions.
- Roll out each small portion into a rectangular shape.
- Place 2 tbsp red bean paste onto the centre of the roll-out dough, leaving some space at the two sides for pinching together.
- Fold the two long ends together, overlapping a bit and gently press to seal it. Turn it over.
- Lightly press the other two sides to seal them as well. Then use a fork to lightly press on both sides to make the pattern. Repeat with the others.
- Brush the top of the pastries with the beaten eggs. Sprinkle some sesame seeds onto each of them.
- Prepare a baking tray and lightly brush it with some melted butter. Place the pastries on the tray.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
- Transfer to a serving plate and serve warm or at room temperature.
