1. Cantonese Walnut Cookies (Hup Tou Sou)
A time-honoured classic, too good to be reserved for special occasions. Toasted walnuts, butter and walnut oil make these cookies extra aromatic.
2. Cantonese Almond Cookies (Hung Ngan Sou)
The almond cousins of hup tou sou, these hearty cookies are a fixture of Chinese bakeries worldwide, but are never better than when home-baked – thin, crispy and rich with almonds, lard and butter.
3. Five Spice Spiral Biscuits
Snappy-crunchy and uniquely perfumed with five-spice powder, brown sugar, shallots, sesame, red fermented beancurd and peanuts. Still found in traditional Chinese biscuit shops, but so much more scrumptious when home-made!
