They look quite cute with the little cherry pieces on top, but I think the kuih makmur tasted nicer.
Recipe is roughly as follows:
70 grams butter (softened)
150 grams ghee
Approx 1 or 1½ cups plain flour
1 cup ground almonds
1 teaspoon bicarb soda
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon almond essence
Glazed cherries for decoration
Beat butter, ghee, sugar, vanilla essence and almond essence in bowl.
Add flour, ground almond, bicarb soda and knead until it forms a soft slightly crumbly dough.
Roll dough into marble size balls, place onto a baking tray and flatten slightly on top.
Decorate with slivers of glazed cherries and bake at 170°Celcius for about 15 minutes.
