Almond Cookies


The Fourth cookies ... Melty Almond Cookies...oh, I should say crunchy melty almond cookies. The flaked almonds provides extra texture to this cookies, when I popped the cookies into my mouth, it melted-in-my-mouth; leave behind the almond flakes for me to crunch. The recipe is really easy and not difficult to achieve the desire result, Jess, you are right!


Almond cookies ready for oven.


Yummy! I ate the cookies immediately when it was out from oven!  


Recipe adapted from J3ss Kitch3n
Ingredients:
150g self raising flour
80g icing sugar (I reduced to 50g)
80g ground almond (I used 100g)
80g diced almonds
100g corn oil
1/2 tsp almond essence
Egg yolk for brushing (omitted)

Steps:
1. Sift together flour and icing sugar, add in ground almond and diced almonds, mix well.
2. Mix almond essence into corn oil and stir well.
3. Mix both ingredients together to form a soft dough. (the dough will come together when you roll them so don't worry about it being crumbly)
4. Shape into small round balls. Place on the baking paper. 
5. Decorate with toppings of your choice and bake in a preheated oven at 170°C for 15-20 mins or until slightly brown.
6. Cool completely on wire rack before storing into airtight containers.
