Chinese Almond Biscuit Recipe

Almond Biscuit

Yield: 45 biscuits


2 1/2 cups all−purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup margarine or butter

1 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1 tsp. almond essence

blanched almonds for decoration

beaten egg for glazing


Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Cream the margarine (or butter) and sugar together until light, white and fluffy. Beat in the egg and almond essence. Stir in the sifted dry ingredients to make a stiff dough.

Form the mixture into balls about 1 − 1.5 inch diameter and place these on a greased baking tray. Place half an almond (split lengthways) on each ball and press to flatten slightly. Brush with beaten egg.

Bake in a moderate oven (350° F / 180°C) for 20 minutes or until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
