Almond Cookies

Simple & easy recipe :) Slightly modified the original recipe * and it turns out great. Nice almond flavour cos of the instant almond powder used. The glazed cookie nearly got burnt therefore for the unglazed portion I reduce the baking temp to 160deg cel for 12mins.

Ingredients (approx 105 pcs)
  • 120gm instant almond powder * ) original 120gm ground almond
  • 100gm plain flour * ) original 180gm plain flour
  • 80gm ground almond* )
  • 100gm caster sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 120ml cooking oil
  • 1 egg yolk for glazing
  1. Sift flour, almond powder, salt & baking powder & soda together. Gradually add in oil and mix into a soft dough.
  2. Scale 6g each rounded portion or cut into shapes using cookie cutter. Arrange on lined baking trays and glaze surfaces.
  3. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 deg cel for 15 mins until lightly browned. Cool well before storage.

hi Peng, I stumble into your blog and just fell in love with this . I wld like to tyr the Almond cookies - my favourite - can I check what is the different between Almond Instant Powder and ground Almond ?
Is Almond Instant Powder the one that we can make into drinks ? and that ground Almond is for baking - like the ones we can buy from PhoonHuat ?

thanks for letting me know! I think I will give this recipe a try as well. And if I have almonds left I might use the pistacio cookie recipe again but with almonds instead.
