These are very popular cookies made specially on Chinise New year and other festivals  like Eid in Malyasia..

Now over to the recipe

50 gm almond nibbles

Sift flour ,cornflour and baking powder
In a bowl beat sugar and butter together till creamy.
Add egg and  essence,beat  till pale yellow
add flour ,almond flour baking powder if using  and fold till you get soft  dough

If  the dough is too  soft  add more flour

  • Divide into marble sized balls
  • Bake /toast the almonds for 7-8  min
  • Cover the cookie with almond ,shape into oval shaped cookie
  • Bake for 20 min 180 degree

  • Dip the cookies in chocolate and with help of spoon/fork lift each cookies and place on paper cups.
  • Sprinkle nibbles before chocolate dries
  • Store it an air tight container..

you can skip egg you are a vegetarian..jus proceed with the rest of the ingredients add few drops of milk if the dough is too crumbly. 
if the dough is too soft to handle ,keep it in the refrigerator for 15- 20 minutes before you shape it to cookies
# i have tried both method adding baking powder and skipping it..both turns out perfect..i feel skipping is much better.

  12. Superb cookies with almonds. Like the shape of the cookies too...

  13. The chocolate hardens and sticks to the baking paper. While trying to separate the cookie from the individual baking paper, the paper will tear or stick to the cookie coated with chocolate. This happens as the chocolate is really very hard. For taste, the chocolate becomes extremely hard which spoils the cookie’s texture. The chocolate is the culprit in this case, while the cookie is still smooth and delicate by itself.
    Any advise on how to avoid the chocolate to not be this way?

    1. Never faced such problem before..try using a different brand of compound chocolate.

  14. hi, is ground almond necessary? can i skip it?

    1. yes its necessary you may skip and use flour but the taste will definitely change

  15. I did as per d recipe but d dough was crumbly without egg. Hence added chilled milk as substitute.
