Every year I like to try a new cookie for the holidays and this year I got to try a new one for a recent Gr8 Dinner!
I am always looking for easy to make cookies that bake up well. This recipe is a keeper and is my new all time favorite! This version of a Chinese almond cookie is very similar to a shortbread cookie. You will be amazed at how simple and addicting these cookies are. Satisfaction guaranteed!
The dough goes together easily.Then I like to use a 1″ cookie scoop to easily make balls.Flatten them using a jar or glass (I love the way the edge looks at this point.)Brush with the egg wash.Sprinkle with the sliced almonds.And Voilà! You have delicious and satisfying Almond Cookies!
Makes approximately 42, 3-inch cookies
Press to flatten balls slightly. You can use the bottom of a glass for this.
Bake in the preheated oven until the edges of the cookies are golden brown, about 13-15 minutes.
An egg wash can be used to add shine and color to your cookies. Simply beat an egg and 1-3 teaspoons of milk or water and brush only the tops (not the sides) of the cookies before baking.
