Buttery, a little bit crumbly, with a warm almond flavour – almond cookies are a hot favourite during festivals like Hari Raya. And once you pop one in your mouth, it’s hard to stop yourself from taking another… and another. Today, we have a family recipe for almond cookies lovingly contributed by Malaque Mahdaly! According to her, this recipe is easy to make, a family favourite, and even if you don’t want to use almonds, you can substitute it with chopped cashews or other additions.
Tip from Malaque: You might be tempted to eat the cookies right after they’re done, but you absolutely have to let these cookies cool first before doing anything with them. Otherwise your cookie creation will crumble easily!
This recipe yields about 80 to 90 small almond cookies. Enjoy!
