Almond Cookies II

This is one of the cookies I baked for Chinese New Year. The taste and method of making this cookies is very similar to peanuts cookies.

Ingredients :

250 grm almonds
450 grm of flour
225 grm icing/powder sugar
220 grm corn oil/vegetable oil
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of salt

Egg Wash

2 egg yolk
a few drop of yellow food coloring

1) Pre-heat oven to 350 degree F. Roast almond for 15-20 min in the oven. In a food processor, ground almond till fine (you can reserve some coarsely ground almond for decoration)
2) In a mixing bowl, mix flour, ground almonds, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix well.
3) Add in oil and knead to make into a dough. Shape the dough round or cut into desired shape.
4) Brush the top with some egg. At this stage you can decorate the top with some almonds. Bake in 350 degree F oven until golden brown.
5) Cool completely and keep cookies in an air-tight container.
