There’s nothing quite like Chinese New Year without the sharing of kam, in the form of mandarin oranges. Translated as “gold” in Cantonese, kam signifies the abundance of good fortune and wealth, which is why bags of mandarin oranges have long been a symbolic gift in this occasion. Now, prosperity is also just a few bites away with Lucky Tangerine. These addictive melt-in-the-mouth cookies with a hint of almond are sure to satisfy your hunger pangs.
With prosperity also comes happiness. The creamy, crunchy, and distinctive texture of pistachio nuts folded into dainty looking shortbread savours your taste buds, making Precious Pistachio Rollover Biscuits a joyful addition to your cookie tray. The finely chopped pistachio in every bite of these sumptuous cookies, alongside the perfect blend of butter and nutty goodness, is surely a delightful treat to be served during this prosperous season.
Inspired to reinterpret the moon cake, SCS butter is introducing Pot of Gold Miniature Tarts. Combining an array of traditional Chinese New Year seeds and nuts, they now sit on a delicate & flavourful crust. These tartlets are baked with melon seed, pumpkin seed, sunflower seed, whole almond, macadamia and pecan, held together by rich, gooey caramel.
