|Tong Yuan--New Year Sweet Dumplings|
2 cups glutinous (sweet) rice flour
1 cup cold water
1/2 cup sweet black bean paste
1. Combine flour and water and mix until you have a smooth dough. Then divide it into thirty balls, about one-inch in diameter.
2. Flatten each ball into a two-inch circle with your hand and place 1 teaspoon of bean paste in the middle of the circle. Fold dough over and seal and reroll into circles.
3. Boil six cups of water, add dumplings and stir them to prevent sticking. When they float, simmer for five minutes, strain and serve.
4. Best to put four of them into a bowl and add brown sugar to taste.
This recipe serves six.
