    1. Maybe you got the other type of paper which is not actually parchment paper. Try to get the parchment paper from the baking ingredients shop. Good parchment paper do not stick onto your cookies.

I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!
