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.


Recipe from New Year Cookies by Alan Ooi cookbook)

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

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 8g 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 170 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.
