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
  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
