I keep seeing articles about Lunar New Year, which it seems is what we've always referred to as Chinese New Year. Why the change? Have we been offending the Chinese people? Or is it just another of those things that they can't seem to leave alone?

Just popping in briefly to throw in a couple of comments …. Viktoria, I would use butter rather than margarine in that recipe, (but I am a butter fiend) and presumably plain flour rather than sr flour.

Roobarb, Calling it Lunar New Year has crept in here too where it used to be called “Chinese” NY. Living in an area with a huge Chinese population, I can’t see them ever being offended by this. Other countries also celebrate at this time, so the term Lunar New Year is coming into use to include them as well, (though I don’t think any non Chinese would have been offended either).  :)

Thank you both for kindly posting your recipes.  I am thinking of an event I could make these for too.

Yes, I had wondered about 'Lunar New Year' instead of Chinese New Year,  too Roobarb.

I'd been boggled by "Lunar New Year", too. Glad I wasn't alone in being baffled.

Thanks Ruskie, I can imagine whatever the results they will still be delicious —- a soggy delicious mess or a tooth breaking crispy one.
However other recipes do state butter .
I will follow the one that has been quoted on RC,but no water perhaps.
Many thanks .
Viktoria,

P.S.
It is years since I made those tooth rotting deliciousnesses “Flap Jacks .”
