桃花 Almond Cookies


One of the CNY must do cookies would be this almond cookies. The melts in the mouth texture simply so addictive, I couldn't help but to pop one after another. There are many different recipes out there and I am sure all of them are as good!

I missed the last Aspiring Bakers #2 Christmas cookies.... So I am going for the  Aspiring Bakers #3 My Favorite CNY Cookie (Jan 2011), which I thought I should join this time. The peach blossom look is my last minute idea. So if those who has got no piping gun to pipe out the blossoms, you may just roll them into ball shapes and brush with egg wash( which was the original recipe mentioned) to get that golden glossy finish.

This recipe was given by my aunt many years ago. Wonder is she making it this year....


230g   Icing sugar
600g   Plain flour
2 tsp baking soda
3 tsp baking powder
160g  ground almond
400g  cooking oil

1. Mix everything in a stand mixer till everything well combined.

2. Use a cookie piping gun or roll them into small ball. Place them on baking tray lined with parchment. Brush with egg wash(if it is in ball shape), and bake in pre heated oven170'c for 10 minutes or the cookies gets little brown. Cool on a wire rack.
