Apart from making and eating the obligatory sweet puddings and turnip cakes, those who believe that Chinese New Year is all about the eating can take a cue from baking communities around the world, who are showing off their tiger year desserts. While there are plenty of great Instagram cake shops and online dessert purveyors to tap into for new year-themed sweets, if you feel like taking up a challenge at home this holiday then these are a few of our favourite big cat bakes to attempt in your home kitchen.
Thai tea, white chocolate and condensed milk cookies
These sweet little tiger cookies are infused with Thai milk tea-flavoured condensed milk, a trick that baker @eatenbychacha discovered while experimenting with her recipe. The result is a chewier cookie with a strong tea flavour.
