Bao Zi
Ingredients (for the dough):
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups flour
1. Mix the yeast, sugar, and salt, and add one cup of lukewarm water. Set this aside for fifteen minutes before adding the flour and incorporating it into a dough. Knead until smooth, cover the dough with a damp cloth, and let it rest for half an hour.
2. Knead again, then roll sausage-shaped until it is about ten inches long. Cut into ten pieces, and flatten each one into a four inch circle.
3. Select a filling of your choice, if using one, and put one tablespoon of it in the center of one of the flattened pieces. Gather the edges and twist lightly to close (or enclose the filling). Put seam-side down on a tray and set aside until all are made, for about half an hour. Then, using a shape knife make a cut or two into the dough but not into or just slightly into the filling.
4. Put on parchment paper squares on a steamer rack over rapidly boiling water. Cover and steam for fifteen minutes, remove, and serve.
