Eat Pork Buns

A popular snack in China, barbecue-flavored, pork-wrapped buns symbolize prosperity and a full life (including wealth and happiness). Here’s how to make them: Using refrigerated biscuits, roll each into a 6-inch circle and fill with 4 Tbsp. premade pulled pork (either from your favorite recipe or from the refrigerated section of the grocery store). Fold the dough over to enclose the filling, or pinch edges together toward the center to close. Brush with milk, sprinkle sesame seeds on top and bake at 350°F until the bread is golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.
