Chinese Tea Treats


Keeping with the theme of China, I am going to share some recipes that will go perfectly with you Chinese tea.

First up is

Chinese Almond Cookie Recipe   almonds-1326472_960_720


All-purpose flour — 3 cups, sifted (in Haodou’s original recipe, she uses cake flour. I didn’t have it when I had the urge to try the recipe. It turned out that the all-purpose flour works fine. If you are not convenience-oriented, try to use cake flour.)
Sugar — 1 cup
Baking soda — 1/2 teaspoon
Salt — 1/2 teaspoon
Butter — 1 cup
Egg white — 4
Egg — 1
Almond extract — 1 1/2 teaspoons, you can duble it if you really like the taste of almond
Almond or Almond slices — 1/4 pound
Egg — 1, beaten


Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees Farenheit

Sift flour, sugar, baking soda and salt together into a bowl. Add egg, lard and almond extract. Mix well.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Set them 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Place an almond or a couple of almond slices on top of each cookie and press down to flatten slightly

Brush each cookie lightly with beaten egg before baking. Bake for 15 – 18 minutes until golden brown. Cool and store in a sealed container.
