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:

Ingredients

  • 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:

    蛋白4颗,细砂糖90公克,奶油30公克,低筋面粉20公克,玉米粉20公克,杏仁片170公克

    做法:

    1.蛋白加入细砂糖一起轻轻拌匀。
    2.将奶油隔水加热融化后,倒入作法1的材料中拌匀。
    3.低筋面粉、玉米粉过筛后,加入作法2的材料中一起拌匀,再加入杏仁片混合均匀即为杏仁片面煳。
    4.烤盘布上放好模板,将杏仁片面煳用汤匙舀入模板内摊平,表面摆少许杏仁片,放入烤箱上层,以180℃约烤15∼20分钟即可。

Directions

  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.
