    The dough for these addictive, delicate Chinese cookies (hua sheng bing in Mandarin) is chock-full of unsalted, roasted peanuts. They're a popular treat year-round, but also great for Chinese New Year.

    This is a very easy recipe for Chinese egg tarts. Feel free to reduce or increase the sugar used in the pastry and the filling to suit your tastes. Wonderful to serve if you are having a Chinese dinner party.

    This cake is cooked in a bamboo steamer over boiling water. The results are a light, moist sponge. Dust with icing sugar before serving.

    This dessert is a wonderful change from banana fritters. Apple chunks are fried in batter, then coated in caramel and sprinkled with sesame seeds.
