Mandarin Pancake

2 Cups Unbleached Flour

1 Cup Boiling Water

1 ½ Tablespoons Dark Sesame Oil

Lightly spoon the flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife.  Combine flour and water in a large bowl.  Stir until a soft dough forms.  Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface.  Knead until smooth and elastic (for about 3 minutes). Shape the dough into a 1 ½ inch thick log.  Divide the dough into 16 equal portions.  Roll each dough portion into a 6 inch circle on a lightly floured surface.  Brush 8 pancakes evenly with oil.  Top each with one of the remaining pancakes, gently pressing together. 

Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium high heat.  Place 1 pancake stack in pan and cook 1 minute on each side or until slightly puffed.  Remove from pan and cool.  Peel pancakes apart.  Fill with Mu Shu Pork mixture.  16 Servings
