Almond sugee cookies

Following the success of my Arab Cookies or Kuih Makmur... this afternoon I decided to attempt making some sugee (almond) cookies


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.

  2. but cookies have so much sugar in them, and you can't just stop at 1! I used to keep eating cookies until I looked at the recipes and saw how much butter and sugar there is in EVERY single recipe. Now I eat chocolates instead :P At least the sin isn't camouflaged
