    Hi, Wow, how did you shape these so they came out almost looking like cookies? I've been looking for some new ways to use tofu-my family and I are living in China's Sichuan province, and even though I love that Sichuan peppercorn, some days its nice to have a different flavor... What do you typically serve these with? Thanks for the feedback!

      Hi Christine, I usually start by making a roundish ball, then flatten with my palm into a patty shape just like making a burger patty. I hope it helps :)
