Updated : The Chinese almond cookies recipe is over here.
I have the Chinese peanut cookies recipe which is the cookie normally baked for Chinese New Year. I wonder if I can use the same portion to make almond cookies, replacing the peanuts with almonds.
I had searched the internet and none of the recipe looks like they are what I want. Many of them add egg which usually is not meant for cookies like these. Egg will make the cookie expands, right?
So, anyone have any idea about how to make the almond cookies like the above? I bought a little jar for RM17. It is so crunchy and crispy and there is a little piece of almond inside the cookie. Nice!
Jars of kueh kapit at the shop. (This is from Ang Hoay Lor Restaurant. A girl sells these cookies outside the restaurant.)
BTW, if you like Chinese New Year cookies, now is the best time to indulge as they are freshly baked and you can start spreading the fats out instead of pigging out in the last few weeks. Hehehe. I spent RM70 on just three jars of kueh kapit and this cookies. My kids had finished one jar of kueh kapit already. RM18 in one seating. I told them it is time all of us learn to make kueh kapit already.
