Chinese New Year Cookies

I know it's a little too late, but "Happy Chinese New Year, Everyone!" It's better late then never, right?

How did your CNY celebration go? That's if you celebrate... :) Unfortunately, I was in a retreat camp over the weekend. But Chinese New Year is never the same here as it is back home anyway. 

Can't wait to pig out with my family and friends next year! 

Anyway, I've been a little caught up with travelling these past couple of weeks, so this post has been pending since last month! By the way, these are the cookies that I made with my DIY cookie cutters.

招财进宝 (zhao cai jin bao) means: to usher wealth and prosperity. In this case, the cookie is in the shape of old fashioned Chinese coins.

The DIY cookie cutters did their job and I'm quite pleased with how they turned out to be. I guess my favorite ones are the lanterns! What do you think?

The more I look at this pagoda cookie picture, the more I think of Mickey Mouse-second from the top. See what I mean?

So anyway, here's to all celebrating! Have a bountiful Horse Year ahead!
