Certain cookies hold significant meaning. Take, for example, Pineapple Jam Tarts where the word “pineapple” in the Hokkien dialect (“ong lai’) sounds like the phrase “prosperity” has arrived”. Thus, pineapple tarts are often served as they are believed to usher in prosperity and good fortune.
Peanuts symbolize good health and longevity, making Chinese Peanut Cookies a sought-after delight during this season. Additionally, the coin-like appearance of Almond cookies associates them with the symbolism of wealth.
These cookies are perfect for gifting during the Lunar New Year season or any time throughout the year. Naturally, they are also a delightful treat to enjoy at home!
