Need some festive baking inspo to get those creative juices flowing? Here are 3 very popular confectioneries that even a beginner can master!
1. Cranberry Biscotti with Orange Peel
Orange peel is a key ingredient as oranges are believed to usher good luck and fortune due to their pronunciation in Chinese. To amp up the dessert factor, you can even pair this with a generous scoop of ice cream, by dipping it or crumbling and sprinkling on top of the cold treat!
For the coming Chinese New Year, BELLS Baking Studio is introducing this festive recipe in our baking courses in singapore until 31 Jan 2023!
Find it under our Cakes and Cookies baking lesson in Singapore, where we share more of such recipes that are totally beginner-friendly!
2. Butter Cookies
These melt-in-your-mouth cookies aren’t great for the diet, but boy are they addictive! Reminiscent of the iconic Jenny’s butter cookies, have a go at making them in under half an hour.
Simply mix flour water, butter and pipe into your desired shapes. To further customise the recipe, try incorporating vanilla essence, orange or even for a more festive vibe! Finally, use sugar icing to decorate with classic Chinese New Year symbols to usher good fortune.
The best part of the process? The deliciously addictive butter aroma that wafts through your kitchen as they bake golden-brown in the oven!
Are you familiar with these peanut cookies at every relative’s table?
If so, add your own twist on this beloved classic by substituting peanuts with walnuts! Walnuts are known to keep bad cholesterol away, contain tons of good vitamins and minerals like thiamine, vitamin B6, folic acid, phosphorus, magnesium and copper, and are naturally gluten, sodium and cholesterol-free. All of this makes walnuts a nutrient-dense superfood that can build your immune systems and protect brain health.
Simply incorporate coarsely chopped walnuts into simple shortbread cookies, creating a crumbly yet crunchy texture!
