    Buster's friend's Note:

    I love fresh almond cookies! PICHET ONG'S HOLIDAY COOKIES adapted from Prep time includes chilling the dough. Chef's Quote "These are a staple in traditional Chinese restaurants. Unfortunately, the store-bought variety tends to be hard and tasteless. But this version is wonderfully light, with a crisp edge and chewy center. The traditional cookies are also a dull, dark yellow from an egg yolk wash. I use an egg white wash to get the same glazed effect in a creamy shimmer. Finally, the slivered almonds on top add a nice crunch and a fresh, toasted nut flavor."

    1. 1
      Sift together the flour, sugar, and baking soda.
    2. 2
      Put the almond flour, butter, and salt into a second bowl and mix until the mixture resembles cornmeal, about 3 minutes if using food procesor with paddle attachment on medium speed.
    3. 3
      Add the egg and almond extract and mix until well-incorporated.
    4. 4
      Add the flour mixture. Mix just until no traces of flour remain.
    5. 5
      Transfer the dough to a large sheet of plastic wrap, flatten into a 1-inch thick disc, cover tightly, and refrigerate until hard, at least 30 minutes.
    6. 6
      Preheat the oven to 325°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
    7. 7
      Form the dough into 1/2-inch balls and put on the baking sheets 1 inch apart. Use the palm of your hand to press the balls into 1-inch circles. Press slivered almonds into each cookie, decoratively arranging them.
    8. 8
      Brush the tops of the cookies with the egg white, then bake until golden and crisp around the edges, 15 minutes.
    9. 9
      Cool completely on the cookie sheet and serve or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
