Almond Cookies!
Adelenne lives in Singapore and is busy preparing for the coming Chinese New Year celebrations.
There's always lots of sweet treats to make in preparation for when you have visitors around.
That's the custom during Chinese New Year, that you go and visit your friends and family, and you would have a huge selection of candies, cookies, cakes and of course tea available for all the visitors. It's a wonderful time of year, full of love and giving, and for the upcoming celebrations at the end of January 2014, it will be to welcome in the New year, of the Horse. Adelenne has kindly shared her recipe for almond cookies, which are very popular indeed!

1 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup veg oil
1 tsp almond extract
Whole almonds
1 beaten egg yolk for glazing

3. Place on a parchment lined baking tray and press an almond on top of each ball.

4. Glaze each cookie with yolk.

5. Bake for 20 - 25 mins at 350 F

Adelenne's notes:
The bottom of the cookie has to be golden brown or darker than the sides or it will not hold.
