      This is basically the same recipe that I use except mine has an additional 1/4 cup of flour and I sometimes use butter flavored shortening (1 cup) instead of real butter. The shortening gives the cookies a similar taste and texture to the ones I have at my favorite Asian eatery. The butter takes this cookie to another level in flavor, richness. Either way, butter or shortening this is a good Chinese Almond Cookie recipe, it saved me from posting my own very slightly different version. If you want to remove the skins from your almonds just place them in a small pot with water, and boil for a couple of minutes. Remove almonds from water and the skin should slip off very easily. You can dry and slightly toast them if you like before using, I use them as they are.

      These are wonderful cookies. I love the fact that it calls for butter and not shortening. Way better than store bought ones. Perfect compliment to Chinese tea served after a Chinese meal.

      This recipe looked like it did not call for enough liquid and sure enough there wasn't. I added an extra beaten egg and then some water to pull the dough together. <br/>Don't forget to chill these flattened cookies before baking as they will spread.<br/>Yummy texture & flavor.
