Chinese Almond Cookie Recipe

Chinese New Years is tomorrow, so I thought this cookie recipe will suit for the occasion. It's a quick and simple recipe and you don't need a lot of ingredients. The only time consuming part is moulding the cookies. But it's optional if you want big or small cookies.

Not everyone likes almond flavour food. I remember eating almond jelly in the can when I was younger and it tasted like medicine. Now that I'm older, I enjoy the taste more.

The almond cookie recipe was from my mother's friend. The cookies are nice and crunchy. Maybe it's from the large amount of oil that goes into the mix. I don't know if this cookie is healthy but it's a nice snack to pop into your mouth.

Please enjoy making the cookie!

Please see below for my recipe:

Prep time: 10-30mins (making smaller balls takes longer)
Baking time: 15 mins
Serves: About 50-70 pieces (depending on size)

120g Almond meal
Start with 100ml oil
150g plain flour
100g caster sugar
1 egg, beaten (used for egg wash)


1. Put the flour, sugar and almond meal into the bowl and mix together.

2. Slowly add the oil into the dry mixture as you stir. If the mixture is too dry add more oil. The mixture should hold together like wet sand.

3. Using a round utensil/spoon (or you can use your hands and roll into a ball, then flatten a bit), spoon the mixture and put it on the baking tray with baking paper.

4. Beat the egg. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the egg wash on top of the cookies.

5. Pre heat the oven to 180C/350F.
6. Afterwards add the tray in oven and bake for 10-15mins, or until the cookies become golden brown.

7. Put the cookies onto a wire rack to cool down.



Quick & Easy Crispy Almond Cookie Recipe

You can learn how to make almond cookies! 
This is one of my favourite recipes to make. It's quick and easy, it will take less than 30mins (including baking time).
I was debating if I should have put the title as crispy or crunch because it's both! 

Enjoy the recipe below and let me know what you thought of the cookie!

In the video, the subtitle and the audio doesn't match as well.. Originally I thought I'll do the normal subtitle on the bottom, but I thought, why not add a voice over.
From now on, I'll try and do more voice over and do less of the subtitle.

Please see below for my recipe:

Prep time: 10-20mins
Baking time: 15-30mins
Serves: About 15-30 pieces (depending on size)

90g Flour (plain/all purpose)
40g Sugar (granulated/caster)
3x Egg whites
230g flaked almond
2 tbsp oil (canola/olive/vegetable)
*This amount of ingredients gives me 2 and a half batches to cook in the oven.

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F

2. Grab your mixing bowl and add the 3 egg whites.

3. Pour the sugar, flour and oil on top of the egg whites.

4. Mix it using a whisk, until the batter becomes smooth

5. Afterwards, add the almond flakes into the batter mix, then put it aside

6. Grab the baking tray and line it with baking paper (foil underneath is optional)

7. Scoop some batter onto the tray

8. Use the spoon to spread out as thin as possible. If it’s too thick, the cookie won’t taste as nice and will be thick. This may take a few tries!

9. Once done, add it into the oven for 15mins or under golden brown. The temperature remains as 180C/350F.

10. Get your cooling rack ready on a table. Once the cookie is ready, take it out of the over.

11. While the cookie is still soft, cut or rip in pieces. If the middle is still white/light brown, put it back into the oven for another 15mins or until it’s golden brown
