1 cup Chinese black dates
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons lard
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup rice or buckwheat flour, or a combination of both
1 cup corn oil
1. Simmer dates and sugar in two cups of water for one hour. Remove the pits and mash thoroughly, mix with the lard and cool overnight, in the refrigerator. Take this out two hours before use, and allow it to come to room temperature.
2. Beat eggs, flours and one cup of water, then let this batter rest for half an hour.
3. Pour about three tablespoons of the oil into a hot fry pan and put in one-fourth of the batter. Cook until set, turn over and cook only one minute on the second side. Repeat three more times until all batter is used.
4. Put the cooked dough circle on a plate and put one-fourth of the date paste on half of it. Fold over and cut each half into three pieces and put on a serving plate, and put this plate into a two hundred degree F oven. Complete using all dough and date paste, then serve when hot or warm, do not let them cool.
