Almond Cookies

Every Chinese New Year, I will bake this Almond Cookies without failed as this is my favourite. 

I have posted this recipe last year but thought of sharing it here again as I highly recommend that you should try it out and who knows, it might get you addicted to it.

 



ALMOND COOKIES
Recipe from New Year Cookies by Alan Ooi cookbook)

Ingredients
A
120g almond meal (ground almond)
180g plain flour
120 caster sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda

B
120ml vegetable cooking oil (sunflower, canola or corn oil)

For Glazing:
1 egg yolk (beaten)

1.  Combine Ingredients A and B in a mixer and mix to form a dough.
     (In this part, you may use your hands to knead till all combined well.  It look more like
     crumbs but it is ok or you may add a little more oil in).

2.  Scale the dough of about 7g each rounded portion.  
     (Scoop 1 tsp of the mixture out and shape it to round again)
 
3.  Arrange on a lined baking trays and glaze the surfaces with egg wash.

4.  Bake at a preheated oven at 180 Celcius for about 15-20 minutes until lightly browned.
     Cool well before storage.


At the bakery shop here, one container selling at $30.00!  
It is always economical to make at home though tiring but it is all well the effort because it is homemade!   And that is what I love to do.
