    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.

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

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.
