1/6 Photos of Chinese Almond Cookies
This is the recipe my Grandmother has been using for a very long time. She's not sure where it originated. She says the margarine is important-no subs. The original recipe has you cut the ingredients together but she achieves the same results using a mixer. These end up with a soft crumby texture.
