Great recipe that's easily adaptable to what you have on hand. I added grated ginger, sesame oil and gochuchang (korean pepper paste) and used Mrs Schubert's frozen rolls -- just sliced them in half, put in the filling, and heated it up for 15minutes. Quicker and easier than rolling out dough and just as tasty. Perfect lunchbox leftovers.
Baked Hoisin Chicken Buns
Most often, you'll see this type of stuffed bun steamed, but many Chinese dim sum restaurants also serve baked versions. Frozen roll dough is convenient and saves the trouble of making homemade dough; just be sure to thaw it in the refrigerator overnight. You can prepare the filling the day before the party, then fill and bake the buns so they'll be warm for arriving guests.
