Winnie’s Almond Cookies for CNY

18 Jan

Last weekend, I spent my entire day in baking cookies for Chinese New Year (CNY) which is around the corner. Well, I came across a magazine which contains of a recipe to make “Hazelnut drop cookies”, and so I thought I’ll give it a try. Then, I thought probably I can even improvise the recipe to “Winnie’s Almond Cookies” which melts in your mouth. haha.. I always like my cookies to be less sweet..

Say if you are interested to try it out yourself at home. Here, let me share with you my recipe to make some “Winnie’s Almond Cookies”.

1 cup       Flour
1/2 cup  Corn Flour
1/4 cup  Icing sugar
1/2 cup  Ground/Chopped Almond
175g        Butter, soft at room temperature


1. Use an electric hand mixer to cream butter, sugar and flours (flour and corn flour) for 5 mins or until light and fluffy.

2. Fold in almonds until well-combined. Chill dough in fridge, covered, for 4 hours.

3. Preheat oven at 180°c. Meanwhile, flatten the dough about 2cm using cling wrapper and hand palm pressure, it is easier to shape the dough as you like.

4. Place the shape of the cookies on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 15mins till it turns into golden brown.

5. Allow the cookies to cool down before you keep it into container. It is advisable to cut two-pieces of baking paper same shape as your container, to place one at the bottom and one on top.

Hope you enjoy it..
