Finally, there's this recipe for sweet sesame wonton crisps. Serve with a tart tangerine sorbet for a soft-crunchy balance of textures. Not only is this dish unexpected, but it also symbolizes luck. To check out the recipe,

Ingredients

  1. 8 square wonton wrappers, thawed if frozen
  2. 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  3. 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  4. Pinch of salt

  6. 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  7. 4 teaspoons white or black sesame seeds, or a mixture
