Chinese Almond Cookie Recipe


This Chinese almond cookie recipe is one of my favorite easy dessert recipes, good for both holidays and normal days. You'll let your kids, guests and yourself have some good times.

I learned this from Haodou who's in China. Thanks to the internet. The Pacific Ocean can be crossed in one second. I got motivated when she mentioned how easy it was. If you are like me enjoying good and easy recipes, this is one that you don't want to miss.

Before we begin our recipe, in case you like to eat almond cookies AND want to buy from bakeries, I volunteer myself to recommend the Koi Kei Bakery from Macau. It was recommended to me by my friends from Hong Kong years ago. I have tried a few brands since then and agreed with them that this brand is the best.

However, not being much a sweet tooth, cookies (including Koi Kei almond cookies) from shops are a little too sweet for my taste in general. This is another motivator for me to make more use of my kitchen.

Now the easy Chinese almond cookie recipe:


  • All-purpose flour -- 3 cups, sifted (in Haodou's original recipe, she uses cake flour. I didn't have it when I had the urge to try the recipe. It turned out that the all-purpose flour works fine. If you are not convenience-oriented, try to use cake flour.)
  • Sugar -- 1 cup
  • Baking soda -- 1/2 teaspoon
  • Salt -- 1/2 teaspoon
  • Butter -- 1 cup
  • Egg white -- 4
  • Egg -- 1
  • Almond extract -- 1 1/2 teaspoons, you can duble it if you really like the taste of almond
  • Almond or Almond slices -- 1/4 pound
  • Egg -- 1, beaten
  • 材料:





  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees Farenheit

  2. Sift flour, sugar, baking soda and salt together into a bowl. Add egg, lard and almond extract. Mix well.

  3. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Set them 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Place an almond or a couple of almond slices on top of each cookie and press down to flatten slightly

  4. Brush each cookie lightly with beaten egg before baking. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes until golden brown. Cool and store in a sealed container.
