Almond Butter Cookies

This is another type of almond cookies. A light and buttery type. Got this recipe from Richard Goh's CNY Cookies class years ago but never try doing it till now. However I still prefer Aunty Yochana's recipe on Almond cookies that melts in the mouth type. This one taste more like butter cookies. .

Here's the recipe from Richard Goh:

150g Cold Butter
100g Icing Sugar
1tsp Vanilla flavour
1 Egg
200g Self-raising flour
50g Corn flour
100g Ground almond
1/2tsp Salt

Preheat oven to 160 degree c
1. Cream butter, icing sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add in egg.
2. Add in flour, corn flour, ground almond and salt to mix well.
3. Put the pastry into a cookie mould and press out the shapes you preferred onto a greased baking tray. ***
4. Bake the cookies on the centre rack of the oven for about 18-20 mins.
5. Leave the cookies to cook and pack into an air-tight container.

*** Another alternative, is to place the pastry on a piece of greased proof paper and roll into a square or round roll (about 1 inch in diameter). Freeze the roll for about 1 to 2 hrs till harden and cut the rolled dough into slices. (That's what I had done as I don't like to use a cookie presser)
