Li Hing Animal Crackers


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon li hing powder
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 1 (32-ounce) bag animal crackers


Heat oven to 250°F. Spray a foil baking pan with non-stick spray.

In a small saucepan on low-medium heat, melt butter and sugar; it should not be bubbling.

Add lemon juice and li hing powder.

Pour crackers into foil pan. Pour glaze over crackers and gently toss until evenly coated.

Bake for 1 hour, gently tossing the crackers at 15-minute intervals. Cool and store in an airtight container.

Tip: To prevent crackers from sticking together, remove from oven and place in front of a fan, tossing the crackers to cool quickly.
