Carrot Apple Muffins


As the name suggests, these cuppies taste more or less like a carrot cake but in the form of muffins.  They are yummy especially with a hot cup of tea for breakfast or to snack on.

Hup Toh Soh (Chinese Walnut Biscuits) ~ CNY 2020 核桃酥

These Hup Toh Soh (Chinese Walnut Biscuits) are without hup toh/walnuts.  I do remember from young that the traditional Hup Toh Soh that I ate those days were quite big, around 4 inches in diameter or because I was small and to me everything looked big!  They were made with lard and were very crunchy but there wasn't any trace of hup toh in them and nobody asked why.   Although these biscuits are without walnuts, they are still crunchy and yummy.  If you are allergic to nuts, this is a recipe for you.  Give this a try for the coming Chinese New Year.
However, if you would like to have a recipe of  Hup Toh Soh with walnuts, do hop in 'here'.
