Celebrate Chinese New Year with these delicious Honey Almond Cookies! Softer and lighter than traditional ones, but every bit as delicious!
Ingredients
  • 3½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 cup butter, cut into pea-sized pieces
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • almonds (about 36)
  • 1 large egg white for glazing
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (or a standard large bowl if you don't a standing mixer), combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. On low speed, gradually add the pieces of butter. Once incorporated, add the eggs, honey, and almond extract. Beat until a smooth dough forms.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll a tablespoon of dough between the palm of your hands and place on the baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. With the palm of your hand, gently flatten the ball of dough and place a single almond on top of each cookie.
  4. In a small bowl combine the egg white with 1 tablespoon of water. Brush the cookies with the egg wash and bake for 15 -18 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. (Refrigerate any remaining dough in between batches).
  5. Enjoy immediately or store in an air-tight container for several days.
