Yummy! Couldn't find dried lily buds but it didn't matter, the filling and sauce were delicious and very easy. I used frozen mu shu shells from my local Asian market so can't comment on the pancake part of this recipe. Will definitely make again.
I can't find the dried lily buds. My Asian market didn't seem to know what it was. They did have dried lily flower, would that work?
