I like almond cookies. So, definitely this is my "to-bake list". I first saw this recipe posted in Aunty Young's post and really felt very encouraged when she replied my comment "since you have bookmarked few recipes then start to bake! Don't let me be alone. Come on, more people more merrier !"
I'm so motivated and immersed in the festive mood now! Especially after I've baked Pork Floss Cookies, Sesame Peanut Butter Cookies and the recent Pineapple Tarts ... really starting the 'dough' rolling for the more the merrier in baking CNY cookies !

Almond Cookies (杏仁酥）
Ingredients (Yields about 58 pcs)
110g almond powder (I used Almond blanched powder superfined)
165g cake flour
50g icing sugar
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
85g corn oil
Egg wash : 1 egg yolk + 1 tsp water as I preferred lighter colour.
Mix ingredients together, then pour in corn oil and knead into a dough.
Divide the dough into 8g each, shape them into balls (grease your palm if necessary) and arrange on baking tray.
Brush with egg yolk, then spinkle some chopped almond on top.
Preheat oven at 160°C, bake for 20 minutes.
* the oven temperature may vary, do adjust accordingly.
Done ! It took me slightly more than hour to finish baking this batch of almond cookies.
My big kids commented that these cookies tasted soft, very nice and full of almond fragrance too.
Well, another easy to bake but yummy-licious CNY cookies ^-^!
