Holiday and Celebration Foods

Easy Tasty Moon Cake II
Ingredients:
1/2 cup flour
2 Tablespoons margarine, melted
1 can bean paste or lotus seed paste
1 package Crescent Rolls
1 egg, beaten
Preparation:
1. Mix flour and margarine to make an oil dough. Knead until smooth and divide into eight portions.
2. For filling, take one teaspoon of bean paste and roll it into a ball; make eight of these balls.
3. Divide Crescent Roll dough into eight pieces, roll each up into a ball and flatten into a three-inch circle. Put oil dough in center and gather dough around it to make a ball. Repeat until all are made this way.
4. With your hands, shape this into a strip about two-inches wide and four-inches long. Roll this strip into a ball and flatten to make it pancake shaped. Use your thumb to make a depression in the middle of each piece of dough and place bean paste there. Enclose the dough around this and flatten to make moon cake about two-inches in diameter.
5. Arrange on a greased baking sheet and brush top with beaten egg.
6. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Note: One can omit the oil dough and only use the Crescent Roll dough, The result will not be as flaky.
