Almond Cookies

It is that time of the year again when wife would be going non-stop in the kitchen, baking trays and trays of See's cookies and packing them into containers for our relatives and friends.

This year, we tried a few new recipes and this is my personal favourite - crumbly and melt-in-the-mouth. You have to bake this!

Almond Cookies 


170 gm. shortening
110 gm. icing sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
200 gm. plain flour
80 gm. cornflour
100 gm. toasted almond flakes
a little cornoil if dough is too dry


Cream shortening with icing sugar till creamy.

Add in plain flour, cornflour then the roasted almond flakes.

Slowly pour in cornoil to form into a dough.

Chill in the fridge for 30 mins. then roll into 1 cm thick, use a round cutter to cut into rounds.

Bake at 170C for about 25 mins. till cooked and lightly brown.

Remove and leave to cool on a wire rack before storing in cookie containers.
