Crunchy Melty Almond Cookies

I love almond cookies, both the traditional crunchy type and the modernized melt in the mouth
These cookies are more to the latter - melt in the mouth, but with some added crunch in it, thanks to the almond slivers in the dough


 
 
Recipe is from Jess Kitchen
 
What you need:
 
150g self raising flour
70g icing sugar (original recipe 80g)
80g ground almond
80g slivered almonds
100g corn oil (I used rice bran)
1/2 tsp vanilla essence (original recipe used almond essence)
egg yolk for brushing
 
Method:
  1. Sift together flour and icing sugar, add in ground almond and slivered almonds, mix well
  2. Mix essence into oil, stir well
  3. Mix both ingredients together to form a soft dough (the dough will come together when you roll them so don't worry about it being crumbly)
  4. Shape into small round balls (I used 1 heaped tsp) and place into small paper casing
  5. Brush with egg yolk and bake in a preheated oven at 170°C for 15-20mins or until slightly brown
  6. Cool completely on cooling rack and store into airtight containers

  1. Hi Alice,

    I'm a big fan of cookies with melt-in-the mouth textures... It is nice that you have also incorporated some crunches within the melting texture.
