Crunchy Almond Cookies 杏仁脆饼



I made this Crunchy Almond cookies that specially for my husband who prefer crunchy and nutty type of cookie than those flaky and melt-in-mouth cookie. After gaining the experiences from the 4 failed attempted of dragon cookies, this time, it only took me two times to succeed in making this cookie that suit my husband's taste.

One thing i want to highlight in this recipe, do not omit the salt. Because you should be able to taste the saltiness after you finished a cookie (this is the taste of what my husband wants !), and the cookie taste even better after kept it for 1-2days..

If you want more nutty aroma, you may want to add some almond nibbles...And this cookie is "Eggless' too !

Hi Sonia,

Very nice cookies indeed. Very sorry to comment but isn't 5 cm a little too much for the cookies' thickness?

Shirlynn

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Shirlynn, sorry, typo error, not realized 5cm is so thick, hahaha, it should be around 1cm..

Mary said...

These sound great, Sonia. They look really tiny too. Are they bite-size cookies? (I LOVE tiny dessert snacks!)

Eileen@Hundred Eighty Degrees said...

Hi Sonia, this looks good. I'm done with cookie baking so I'll leave this recipe for next year..Thanks for sharing.

Nami | Just One Cookbook said...

I love your almond cookies! Looks delicious and I'm afraid I can keep eating this... =)

Fiona said...

Thank you for the recipe, I baked them this morning as CNY nibbles for my husband and he loved them. I added a flaked almond to the top.

New Kid on the Blog said...

Hi... what is almond meal??

petrina said...

i love all your creative cookies Sonia! will definitely try this one - i love almond cookies!

Quay Po Cooks said...

My mum's friend gave us a tin of almond flakes britters. We finish the britters the same day. I am sure we will do the same for your almond cookies.

ANNE HO said...

What type of butter to use? Salted or unsalted butter? If use salted butter, do I still need to add the salt? Pls advise.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Anne, I used salted butter. Yes you still need to add salt even though you use salted butter, the special of this cookie is the hint of salt after bite.

ANNE HO said...

Thanks for the info. Do I need to leave the dough to rest or freeze the dough before I cut out the pattern and bake? I check through other website and state that the cookies will taste better if leave to rest or freeze the dough. Can I do the same here?

Hi,
your cookies look yummy.
any idea where to buy almond meal
?
i have tried to buy in NTUC and cold storage but unable to find it.

Hi joysnow2010,
You may want to try buying it from Phoon Huat baking store. All kinds of baking needs are available at one stop. All the best.

Baking Scientist said...

Hi Nasi Lemak Lover, thanks so much for sharing this recipe. the ingredients are few and method is straightforward, just the kind of recipe I love :) Best of all, the taste is great! I made a batch this morning. I ran out of corn flour so I substituted part of it with yellow cornmeal, and the cookies taste great :)
