These unique pastries will surely turn heads at your next CNY gathering.
As Chinese New Year festivities round the corner, snacks and cookies are a must have at the table.
But rather than having just a bottle of regular pineapple tarts or butter cookies, it is time to up your snacking game and usher in the festive season in style.
Here are five unique ox-year themed cookies that are sure to be a great conversation starter this Chinese New Year.
Meringue cookies that are good to look at and good to eat? Yes please!
These intricately designed cookies from A Meringue Tale are topped with melt-in-your-mouth orange flavoured meringue – a type of dessert made with whipped egg whites and sugar.
The CNY Meringue Goodies set features the lucky cat and a series of cow-themed cookies paired with an auspicious twist. These Instagrammable cookies are a visual delight and are perfect for young and old.
Specialising in handcrafted macarons and Japanese-French inspired baking, AnnaBella Pâtisserie brings an adorable twist to the new year with their Happy CNY! macaron series.
These delicate macarons are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. From the zodiac characters to the Macowrons set that features (you guessed it) a full cow-themed design, there are plenty of macarons to choose from this Chinese New Year.
If you are craving for a rich and buttery cookie this new year, Always Love Bakery has got you covered.
Handmade using quality butter, their new year series features a mix of cows, mandarin oranges and gold ingot shaped cookies in a box of 20.
With the mandarin orange symbolising luck and the gold ingots representing wealth, this box of cookies is packed full of prosperity for you to huat in the new year.
Known for their customised cakes including their famous drinkable bubble tea cake, local bakery Yours Sincerely Bakery is taking on an ox-year twist on a traditional snack with their Tsum Tsum inspired ox-year pineapple tarts.
Packed in a box of ten, these cute tarts are designed to resemble the popular stackable stuffed toys and are perfect for gifting this new year.
Madeleines are a popular teatime snack that are recognisable by their iconic scallop shell shape and sponge-like texture. This new year, you can try the classic French cake with By.Kaylary’s Chinese New Year special.
The handmade madeleines come in two complimentary flavours for the festive season – pineapple and red dates longan. They also come in the shape of an ox or as gold ingots and are topped with specks of edible gold flakes for that extra huat factor.
Whether you are sharing it with friends or indulging in them alone, these auspicious snacks with a twist will surely deliver smiles all around this Chinese New Year. Happy niu year!
