How to use PieCrust Cutters to make Dasik

  1. If you don't have a Dasik mold, you can easily use PieCrust Cutters. Lightly coat your work surface with sesame oil then either roll out the dough or just flatten with your fingers. Make it quite thick so it doesn't break. Then press the cutter into the rolled out dough and cut shapes out.

Make Dasik cookies with Dasik mold

  1. Raise Dasik mold frame and fill the mold with green tea or omija dough. Press down evenly and fill the mold completely. When filled, press the mold frame down to expose the dasik cookies. Gently pick up each cookie from the mold. See my video for details.
