In the Fire Rooster Lunar New Year, Chinese Peanut Cookies (Hua Sheng Bing) symbolize fertility and wealth. Peanuts by their Chinese name, Qiansuizi (thousand year old offspring) stand for abundance. Include peanuts in your baking to affirm an optimistic future. You’ll benefit from the long lasting texture of chunky peanuts and coarse salt. The fine sugar and butter add richness and stability. Prosper in the satisfaction of happy friends and family. Teach your children the traditions of Chinese Peanut Cookies. They’re easy to mix and bake. Leave me your comments in the section below.
Many thanks to Andrea Nguyen of Viet World Kitchen for this expert recipe. You can see her original post here.
BTW, I discovered that my friend, a fellow Montreal food blogger, Evelyne at cultureatz.com also made Andrea’s Chinese Peanut Cookie recipe for the Lunar New Year. It turns out, we made these cookies on the very same day without realizing. What are the chances? This kind of coincidence created a perfect opportunity to show our readers the same cookie made by two different food bloggers. Check out Evelyne’s Chinese Peanut Cookies.
