  1. I'm not sure if this is the same almond cookies I had at Chinese restaurants. Well, I love them. And I'm sure I'm going to love this too.

    Think it's slightly different. I have a few recipes of this almond cookies/biscuits, some of them use cooking oil instead of butter or margarine. But these can keep well, stays crisp and crunchy even after 3 weeks in the cookie jar.

    When I posted this, didn't think of X'mas, now that you mention it, why not, they keep well.

    Oh, normally I make the 'Chinese' type of almond biscuits for CNY, the one using cooking oil, not butter.
