Almond Cookies for CNY 2017

And I thought I wouldn't have time to make CNY cookies this year.

It was quite a challenge to bake cookies with the baby - she just kept crying while I was rolling the cookie dough lol!

Nevertheless, my husband really enjoy the cookies, so I hope I'll have time tomorrow to make more cookies. Not sure if I'll have the energy to bake for neighbours as well this year.
These are my favourite almond cookies - crunchy and yet slightly melty. Just take note to not over-bake them, otherwise they'd be just crunchy.

Almond Cookies

prep time: 15 MINScook time: 15 MINStotal time: 30 mins


  • 100g ground almonds
  • 150g plain flour
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 3/4tsp baking powder
  • 3/4tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 100ml corn oil
  • Diced almonds
Egg Wash
  • 1 egg yolk + 1 tsp milk, beaten


  1. Sift flour, caster sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt into bowl.
  2. Add the ground almonds to the flour/sugar mixture.
  3. Pour in the corn oil by batches into the bowl containing the flour/sugar/almonds. Mix until a cohesive dough forms.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180’C.
  5. Roll the dough into balls. You might need to "squeeze" the dough to make it compact. Place balls of dough on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  6. You can slightly flatten the top of the dough, make a pattern indentation using a mold if you wish. Lightly glaze the tops of the cookie balls with the egg wash.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cookies become slightly golden.
  8. Leave to cool completely on a wire rack. Store into air-tight container.
