Chinese New Year Biscuits

2 more weeks…to be exact, is just 16 more days and it’s Chinese New Year! Have you get your new shirts and dress or even new shoes? For me, neh i did not go shopping this year, because last year’s CNY wearing there were some which i did not have chance to wear it, so leave it for this year’s, keke 😛 When think of CNY sure will think of softdrinks, angpau, fireworks (thanks to those noob who make their own fireworks creation and blast themselves), gamble, biscuits, lion dance etc, but the main topic here now is Chinese New Year Biscuits. So..which of you out there still making your own Chinese New Year biscuits?

Me and my mom also my sister used to make our own CNY biscuits…3 person doing together so during that time we make A LOT! But ever since my sister was married and i started working, the portion of CNY biscuit we make had slowly reduced because just left my mom who is doing it, if i happens to be there when my mom is making it of course i will help lah, just yesterday, my mom was doing this chocolate fudge cookie (i seriously doesn’t know the name of it), nope i did not do all those preparations and all those mixing stuffs (i don’t know all these wan lah!), all i did was just helping her to do the finishing! Put all shredded groundnuts on top on those cookies while the choc fugde was still in liquid form. kekekke, is an important task arr~~

When comes to CNY, there’s 2 types of biscuits which i always craved for it! One is the Kuih Kapit, we used to make this biscuit our own, but is too troublesome to make we stop it since 3 – 4 years ago. So we have to get from outside if we want to eat it

Another i don’t know the english name, but we call it “Bee Nest” in chinese. Man i seriously LOVE THIS! Every year i sure eat a lot!! But again…did not make this starting for this year. Again the troublesome of the process…need to stay infront of the fire for more than 3 hours just to make it. 🙁

So guys…any favourite Chinese New Year biscuit?

i like the bee nest alot! but unfortunately not making any and not buying it as well…
nowadays i oni fry ‘arrowhead’ (ngaku)…
meanwhile most cookies are to be purchased from shops/stalls.

nowadays dun care whether it’s for Raya or CNY or Deepavali.. that ‘bee nest’ seems to be in any occasion :p and it’s my fave actually. had that during Deepavali when colleagues brought some to office.

Nowadays.. like too troublesome to bake own cookies dah (and hor.. bake so much.. end up sendiri makan.. buat gemuk sendiri je). I’m more of a craker person – like fried shreded yam and fried sliced ‘chi-ku’
