Raya Recipes: Almond Cookies That’s Easy And Tasty!

Yields1 Serving

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.

almond cookies

 250 g unsalted room temperature butter
 100 g granulated white sugar
 2 cups of plain, all-purpose flour
 325 g of chopped almonds
 A capful of vanilla essence
1

Mix butter, sugar and vanilla essence in your Chef XL Titanium, using the paddle whisk attachment. When it’s well blended, you’ll know because the mixture has turned a fluffy pale yellow.

2

While the mixer is still going on, add in flour by the spoonfuls.

3

Add in chopped almonds and increase the mixing speed

4

Chill the dough for an hour in the fridge. Tip: It’s really much easier to work with chilled dough so the butter (and the mixture) doesn’t melt when you’re working with it.

5

Take the dough out and place it on greaseproof baking paper.

6

Roll it out until it is 1cm thick.

7

Use a cookie cutter and cut out small circular cookie shapes. Place the shapes on greaseproof baking paper.

8

Bake it in the oven for 20 – 25 mins at 160 degrees.

9

Let it properly cool and set before carefully storing them in an airtight container.
