Almond Pandan Cookies

It has been a long while since I bake any cookies. The last cookies I baked were Chocolate Chips, Cranberry and Macadamia Nut Cookies and that was in May. I baked this batch this batch of traditional pandan flavor cookies during our Hari Raya celebration and gave some to Zue.

Ingredients:

200 grm butter
120 grm sugar
200 grm flour
50 grm ground almond
80 grm cornflour
1 pinch of salt
1 tsp of pandan paste


1. Sieve flour, cornstarch and salt together. Add in the ground almond, mix well and set it aside.
2. Cream butter, sugar and pandan paste until soft and well combined. Add in the flour mixture and mix till well combined. Roll out to about 0.5cm thick and cut into your favorite design.
3. Place the cookies in a lined baking sheet and bake in a pre-heated 325 degree F oven until lightly brown on the edges.
4. Keep in airtight container once it is cool.

Note: If the dough is too soft keep it in the fridge for half an hour before rolling it.

These are really pretty. Reminds me of Raya! haha... Again! Be honest, the best place to hang out during Raya is going back to 'kampung' where you can go visit any open houses for a treat. haha.... Hope you're enjoying your day. Wishing you & your family a Happy Halloween!
