Chinese Almond Cookies
There are all kinds of almond cookies, today I am teaching you how to make Chinese almond cookies, which are equally great, if not better! Right before Lunar New Year (Chinese New Year), we would be baking up a storm in the kitchen. Other than peanut cookies and walnut cookies, Chinese-Malaysians also love almond cookies.
Almond cookies are white in color, and they look almost like melting moments cookies, but they have a tint of almond flavor because of the almond flakes and almond extract. The cookies are very crumbly, and the almond flakes lend an amazing nutty flavor to the cookies.
My contributor CP Choong tried this almond cookies recipe from a cookbook in Malaysia. The recipe doesn’t call for butter but shortening is used instead, which means that the almond cookies will be super crumbly and melt in your mouth. As a young child, I dislike the taste and unique aroma of almond but as I grow older, almond has become one of my favorite nuts. These almond cookies are sweet, powdery, and they are a great treat for Lunar New Year.
