German New Year "good Luck Pigs". These are little buns that you can fill with anything you like before baking. We make them on New Year's Eve. I usually just free-form the dough into pigs, but you can roll out and punch out all the pieces to come out with much more "professional" looking pigs. The recipe comes from an old German cookbook, but I have changed it a lot over the years, so basically it is my own recipe.
