    palm715's Note:

    I lived in China back in the early 90's and these were a breakfast favorite dipped in sweetened condensed milk. I thought they were like the bread version of marshmallows! I found them again at a Chinese restaurant this weekend, which sent will on a quest to find the recipe. I'm keeping it here at Zaar so I never lose it. Unfortunately, I'm not a low-carb diet right now. Bummer!
