1 pound less two tablespoons yellow corn flour (not corn meal)
6 Tablespoons defatted yellow soybean flour
1/2 pound granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon osmanthus flower paste
1. Mix corn and soybean flours with the sugar into a bowl and stir well. Make a well in this flour mixture.

3. Roll the dough into two even cigar-shaped pieces one inch thick. Cut each of these into twenty to thirty pieces, then shape each piece of dough so the bottom is large and the top is pointed (see the picture). Insert a thumb in the bottom of each piece of dough making the bottom half of it hollow.
