The Lunar New Year of 2012 is the year of the Dragon or Chinese Year 4709 or 4649 depending on who is counting :-) It is only about 9 weeks away.
Every year, on behalf of my mum, we will make cookies for distribution to relatives and friends. We need to decide what cookies we should have and the following four met her and our approval for taste and texture.
Final selections .......
My mum likes strong warm colours like pink or red for Lunar New Year. So her choice is to change the green mint chocolate to the pink strawberry chocolate! We may add some decors like silver /gold dragees or hundreds-thousands to the other cookies.
Baking in our kitchens will begin in earnest after Christmas. usually we include one canister each of the four varieties in the gift pack. Each year, we have to bake some or more forty sets :-O
