I thought I won't be baking anymore cookies for the CNY but I still have some ghee left and thought of finished it off.

I have browsed through the "New Year Cookies cookbook" and this Suji/Ghee Cookies was highly recommended by the Editor's Choice so I guess this must be good.  
My previous Almond Cookies was  from this same recipe book and was also highly recommended by the Editor's Choice.

Yes, indeed this Suji/Ghee cookies is yummy because of the added ground almond.  

Recipe sourced from “New Year Cookies” Cookbook by Alan Ooi 

80g icing sugar
¼ tsp salt
160g plain flour
50g almond flour

110g ghee/clarified butter

For Glazing:
1 egg yolk (beaten)

For Decoration
Some red or greed candied sprinkles (I don’t have this so I just dot with red colour and some red chocolate rice)

Combine ingredients A in a mixing bowl.  Add in ingredient B and mix to a soft dough.
Cover with a piece of clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap.  Rest dough for 4 hours.

Pinch a small piece of dough and roll into rounds, OR roll dough out on floured surface and cut out designs with cookie cutters.
Arrange on greased or lined baking tray.  Glaze cookies and top with coloured sprinkles

Bake at preheated oven at 170C for 15 minutes until lightly browned.
Cool well.

Well, if you still want to bake more cookies for the CNY, this Suji/Ghee Cookies is quite good as it was recommended by the Editor's Choice of that Y3K Cookbooks - New Year Cookies cookbook.  

And also this cookies is good for the elderly who has biting problems (hee...hee...) as this is soft and melt in the mouth!
