Chinese Cocktail Coconut Buns

Christina Chow, P.S. 163Q

There’s a type of bun that the Chinese eat for breakfast or for any time where a sweet treat is needed. It is called a Cocktail (bird’s tail in Chinese) bun. It has a sweet buttery coconut filling inside and it’s smooth brown on the top. This reminds me of my childhood growing up in a Chinese family living in America. It was always a treat and bring back good memories whenever I eat it. I recently learned to make these buns at home, which gives me pride in my heritage, and it will always remind me of a piece of my childhood.
