I saw these being made on a cooking show on PBS they are very tender and buttery. You can freeze in muffin tins and pop in oven when needed.

Chef John's Chinese Scallion Pancakes

Rating: 4.5 stars 39
These fun-to-make flatbreads are a common fixture on menus in China, and while they all feature the same few ingredients, they come in a variety of thicknesses. The thinner you make these, the crispier they'll be, but you won't get that nice, layered, oniony inside. On the other hand, if you make them too thick, they can be a little doughy inside, so I try to shoot for something in between.

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

Chef John's Apple Fritters

Rating: 4.5 stars 200
I didn't think I liked apple fritters, but turns out I just don't like chunks of almost raw apple, surrounded by a doughnut. Maybe I've just been going to the wrong shops, but I've never enjoyed the texture, and always wanted to try them with cooked apples.
