    Chilicat's Note:

    These are the BEST melt-in-your-mouth almond cookies around! They're based on the traditional Chinese recipe but don't have lye in them (yuck).

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    dozen

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
    3. 3
      Cream sugar and shortening until fluffy. Beat eggs with almond extract, then add to sugar mixture. Mix well.
    4. 4
      Gradually add dry ingredients to sugar mixture, mixing well after each addition.
    5. 5
      Roll into 1-inch balls and place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly, as these don't spread very much.
    6. 6
      If you want them to look like traditional Chinese almond cookies, mix a few drops of red food coloring with a few drops of water. Using the blunt end of a chopstick, dip into the red color, then stamp a dot into the center of each cookie. Alternately, you can place a bleached almond in the center of each cookie.
    7. 7
      Bake 20 minutes or until just barely brown on the edges. Transfer to rack to cool.
