(to keep)Thirsty For Tea Dim Sum Recipe #12: Golden Pineapple Buns (Bolo Bao) Happy Chinese New Year!! I hope the Year of the Sheep finds you in good sprits and ready to eat! Yesterday my family met up for an early celebratory Chinese New Year dim sum lunch. For the first time, the hubby and I actually gave red envelopes to my niece, Maddy. As as gesture of promise and prosperity during this holiday, it’s custom for older people give good luck money stuffed in small red envelopes to the little ones. This year, the hubby and I decided to finally acknowledge ourselves as older people. Along with red, gold is also an iconic color during Chinese New Year. Just so it’s clear, there’s absolutely no pineapple in these Golden Pineapple Buns. This bun dough is adapted from my recipe for Baked Char Siu Bao.

Author Nicole Bermensolo brought her love for Japanese culture to Manhattan in 2006 when she and her friend Michael opened Kyotofu, a full-service restaurant and bakery.

In 2013 Nicole and Michael decided to close the restaurant so Nicole could focus on building Kyotofu into a bigger and better business. Nicole has since written a book, Kyotofu: Uniquely Delicious Japanese Desserts, as a way to give people access to the sweets they once served at their restaurant.

These chocolate dulce de leche empanadas are made with a homemade chocolate empanada dough and filled with creamy dulce de leche or caramel. Dulce de leche is very popular in our house, sometimes we make it home from scratch, other times we buy it at the store; regardless it doesn’t last long around here.

Empanadas are also another very popular food in our home.
