Today, I entered one of my dumpling recipes into the Spoonful My Take Winter Kitchen Contest sponsored by Disney. The challenge was to choose a recipe from eight winter recipes provided and make my own special version of it. Of course, I jumped at the chance to make a Disney dumpling. In fact, I recently bought a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter and a Disney cookbook with the plan to make dumpling versions of food found at Disney parks, so this was a great way to test-run my plan. So here is my first Disney dumpling recipe. I have included it below, but it would also help me out if you could visit my recipe at Spoonful and left me a 5 star rating. The following recipe will yield 6 dumplings.
What you’ll need
- FOR THE DUMPLING:
- 3/4 Cup Flour
- Dash of Salt
- 1/3 cup boiling water
- FOR THE FILLING:
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
- 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- FOR THE ICING:
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk
How to make it
- Combine the flour and salt in a bowl. Slowly mix in the boiling water, stirring with a fork or chopstick. Cover the mixture with plastic wrap and let sit for 15 minutes
- In another bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Set aside.
- Flour large surface and turn out the dough. Knead a few times until smooth. Divide dough into 12 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball then flatten with a rolling pin. Use a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter to shape the dough if desired.
- On one piece of dough spread the filling mixture. Put an extra dollop right in the middle. Top with another piece of dough and lightly press the edges to seal.
- In a wok, heat oil on high for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Places dumplings into wok and fry for about 1 minute on each side until golden. Remove from wok and place on paper towels to drain.
- In another bowl, combine powdered sugar and milk. Mix with a fork until smooth. Plate the dumplings and drizzle the icing on top.
