    ChrisMc's Note:

    These Chinese appetizers are fantastic! I first made them for a birthday, and they were very well received. Despite the list of ingredients, they're easy to make; the filling can be prepared by dumping all ingredients in a food processor, and the coating doesn't take much more effort. The prep time includes time for the coating to sit, and the cook time assumes about 3 batches of blossoms.
