When it comes to the holiday season, there’s so many things that immediately bring that holiday nostalgia. One of them is my mom’s “Chinese New Years” cookies. These salty sweet candy/cookie hybrid, have been my mom’s signature dessert to make and also give as gifts. So delicious and SO easy to make (no oven time!), today I’m sharing the recipe as part of a Virtual Cookie Exchange with some of favorite blogger friends!

And to make it even sweeter, we’ll be helping several of you with your Christmas baking by giving away five Target gift cards to do your ingredient shopping with!
