These hamburger cookies make real good memory cookie that many people will remember for lifetime. Apart the character look, the hamburger cookies are delicious, my kids love them a lot. Thanks to Mandy who helped us to bake these for Chinese New Year. The cookies were supposed to keep until Chinese New Year which is another 2 weeks away, but my kids finished them off, not a single one left!
Chinese New Year is the most busiest time for Chinese in preparing to celebrate the biggest festive of the year. Traditionally, Chinese will bake lots of cookies and cakes as gift and they are also served to guests during the 15-day of celebration. I remember helping my mom to bake lots of cookies as well when I was much younger, the typical ones are: Kuih Kapit (Love Letter wafer) and Kuih Bangkit, butter cake etc. We could stand or sit in front of the stove and oven the whole day and night making them from scratch.
Though these hamburger cookies are not the traditional Chinese New Year cookies but I am sure they do make a special and unusual Chinese New Year gift for the friend and relative to remember. Likewise, they could be cookies for any occasion too!
Happy Chinese New Year!
