Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup room temperature vegan butter
  • 3 Tbsp Mazola vegetable oil
  • ½ cup monk fruit sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 egg yolks
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup blanched almond meal
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt

Filling

  • ½ cup cranberry orange jam (or any jam of choice)
  • ½ cup marmalade

Optional topping

  • ⅓ cup monk fruit powdered sugar

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl, use a stand or hand mixer and cream the vegan butter, vegetable oil, sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Fold in egg yolks and lemon zest until incorporated, but don’t over mix.
  2. Sift in flour, almond meal, cinnamon and salt into the butter mixture. Switch to a spatula and mix the batter until a dough forms. Divide the dough into quarters (into 4), and wrap them individually with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Remove one piece of dough from the refrigerator at a time. Place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll it out to ¼ inch thickness. Use a 3-inch cookie cutter or holiday shaped cookie cutters. Don’t cut them too thin, otherwise they might burn.
  4. Place the shaped cookies on the lined baking sheet. Cut out a top for each cookie, using a smaller cookie cutter or even the base of an icing tip to cut out the center so the jam will be exposed. Repeat with the remaining cookie cutouts. If the dough gets too soft, place it in the freezer for about 5 minutes to firm up again. A firm dough ensures that the cookie shapes hold up well.
  5. Bake the cookies for 12 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack until cooled. Once cooled, spread the bottom half of each cookie, alternating between the cranberry orange jam and marmalade, leaving a thin border around each cookie. The jam ensures that the cookies stick together. Place the top of each cookie with the middle cut out on its corresponding bottom half. Return to the cooling rack so that the cookies seal completely. Top with monk fruit powdered sugar if using.

  1. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine flour and milk.
  2. Stir the mixture frequently until it thickens  (about 2 to 3 minutes)
  3. Remove the thickened mixture from the heat, cover, and let cool to room temperature.

MAKING THE DOUGH:

  1. Add all the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Combine and mix the tangzhong, Mazola Vegetable Oil, eggs, and warm milk together, then add this mixture to the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl.
  3. If using a stand mixer, use the dough hook attachment to mix and knead the dough for about 15-20 minutes until the dough becomes smoother, scraping the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed
  4. If mixing by hand, work and knead the dough for about 15 to 20 minutes, until the dough becomes smoother

*Note that the dough will be very wet and sticky but will become more cohesive as you continue to knead.

SHAPING AND PROOFING:

  1.  Shape the smooth dough into a ball, cover with a cloth or plastic wrap and let it rise for about 1 hour until it has doubled in size
  2. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and divide it into 18 equal pieces.
  3. Roll 12 pieces of dough into balls.  With the seam side down, place two balls onto a parchment-paper-lined sheet pan and make sure the balls are touching each other. This will form the head and body of the bunny.  Continue with remaining dough balls until 6 bunny figures are made.
  4. Cut the remaining six pieces in half and roll each half into 12 long ropes, each about 8-10 inches long.  Fold each rope in half pinching the ends together to create the bunny ears, and tuck the ends under the ‘bunny head’. Repeat to create the rest of the bunnies.
  5. Loosely cover the bunnies with a cloth or plastic wrap, and let the dough rise for 40-45 minutes.

BAKING:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 deg F (180C).
  2. Brush the bunnies with egg wash.
  3. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until golden brown.
  4.  Remove from the oven and let cool before decorating.

Intermediate

Ingredients:

  • 350g ground pork
  • 150g minced shrimp
  • 50g each carrots, water chestnut, green onions & shiitake mushrooms, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1.5 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • Rice paper (just enough to wrap the filling)
  • 1.5 liters of Mazola Corn Oil

Dipping Sauce

  • 2 tbsp. calamansi juice
  • 3 tbsp. fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. chili flakes
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tbsp. white vinegar

Instructions:

  1. Combine all ingredients thoroughly. Set aside.
  2. Pour hot water on a deep dish. Take a piece of rice paper and dip it in the water, just making sure that it gets wet. The paper will still be firm at this point.
  3. Place dipped rice paper on top of a tea towel. This is where you will assemble the rolls. Scoop some of the filling on to the bottom third of the rice paper, making a cylinder, about 1.5 inches thick. Start rolling from the bottom up.
  4. Once you reach about halfway through the paper, pull both the sides in, and tuck it under the roll, but make sure that the top flap is pointing in as you continue to roll.
  5. Place spring rolls in a parchment paper lined baking dish. The rolls will be very sticky at this point. Let it air dry or cool in the fridge uncovered for 20-30 minutes.
  6. In a deep dutch pan, pour 1.5 liters of Mazola Corn Oil. Turn on heat to medium high and wait until temperature reaches a stage where there are very fast air bubbles going up and down a wooden spoon placed to the bottom of the pan. This is how you can tell that the oil is hot enough.
  7. Place each spring roll carefully, making sure not to overcrowd the pot. The rolls will be sticky at first until it starts bubbling up. You can use a tong or a chopstick to prevent the rolls from sticking to each other.
  8. Deep fry the rolls for about 15-20 minutes, or until the spring rolls start to bubble and gets a golden brown colour. Place cooked spring rolls in a plate lined with paper towel to drain excess oil. Serve immediately while still crispy and with sweet chili sauce or by making the dipping sauce provided. Enjoy!

Dipping Sauce Directions

  1. Combine all sauce ingredients and serve.

Intermediate

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole white fish (such as sea bass, sea bream, or flounder), descaled, gutted, and cleaned
  • 1″ knob of ginger, peeled and finely julienned
  • 2 stalks of green onion, julienned
  • salt and pepper

Seasoned Oil

  • 1/3 cup Mazola Corn Oil
  • 2 tablespoons dried chilli peppers
  • 1 tablespoon roasted sesame seeds
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

Sauce

  • 1/3 cup light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine (can substitute with sake or white wine)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper

Garnish

  • Cilantro
  • Thai chilli peppers

Instructions:

  1. Wash the fish thoroughly then pat dry with paper towels. Score the fish at a 45-degree angle several times on each side. Season the cavity and the outside of the fish with salt and pepper. Stuff 1/3 of the ginger and 1/3 of the green onion inside of the fish and scatter the rest of the ginger on top.
  2. Add water to a steamer pot and bring it to a full boil over high heat. Put the fish on top of a heat-resistant plate that is large enough to accommodate it but also fits into the pot. Place the plate holding the fish in the steamer, cover, and steam for about 8 minutes or until the internal temperature of the fish reaches 140°F. Carefully remove the plate and discard the liquid around the fish. Spread the rest of the green onion on top of the fish.
  3. In a small saucepan over low heat, lightly toast the dried chilli peppers and sesame seeds then add in the Mazola Corn Oil, turn up to medium/high heat and stir. As soon as the oil starts to simmer, add in the garlic fry for about 30 seconds. Pour the fragrant, hot seasoned oil over the fish, sizzling the ginger and onion and giving the fish a beautiful sheen.
  4. To the same saucepan, add the soy sauce, Shaoxing wine, sugar and white pepper, mix and heat to a simmer. Drizzle the soy sauce mixture over the fish. Garnish with fresh cilantro and sliced chilli peppers and serve immediately.
  5. Best enjoyed with bowls of hot steamed rice!
