Dimsum Meringues

Made some dimsum to satisfy my cravings. Just kidding, these are little meringue cookies, shaped like dimsum! 🥟 Here we have some bao, dumplings (could be hargow), lo mai gai, and shumai. It’s currently quarantine still where I live and I miss being able to go to Cantonese places on the weekends and getting dimsum straight from the carts, but this will have to do in the meantime until quarantine ends.
