Chinese New Year is quite a celebration for the Chinese in Singapore. We usually visit our relatives, gather with friends, gorge ourselves with food :p
Many Chinese around the world celebrate the CNY differently. And of course, the food and snacks to be prepared are quite different too! For Singapore and Malaysia, one of the staple snacks would have to be the pineapple tarts.
The next favourite snack for me would be either almond cookie or peanut cookie. I especially love those with a slight crunch and melty inside.
Are These Almond Cookies Easy To Make?
Absolutely! They are super easy to make – just mix the dry ingredients together and add in the oil. Mix the ingredients together till a dough forms.
Then, we will just roll them into balls, apply egg wash on top of each cookie, and make any imprint if you wish, or top with diced almonds.

How Do These Almond Cookies Taste Like?
I LOVE THEM! They are crunchy on the outside, with a slight melt-in-mouth texture inside.
Do take note of the baking time. The timing to bake is a suggested estimate, as the total time to bake will depend on the heat of your oven.
If you over-bake them, they will turn out crunchy throughout. So if you are making them for the first time, I’d recommend you to try baking perhaps 6 pcs first. If the texture turns out well, you can use that timing to continue baking!
