Almond Flavored Sugi/Sugee Cookies

These are Chinese New Year cookies. Some recipes use ghee (clarified butter) instead of canola oil.

1 1/3 cup of unbleached all-purpose flour (or plain flour)
2/3 cup of icing sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda


1 tsp. almond extract
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup + 2 Tbp. canola oil


1. Sift (A) into a mixing bowl. Add (B) and use a fork to stir it. Mix well, a soft/wet dough should form. Collect the dough together and knead the dough a few times.

2. Use your hands and roll the dough into small balls (about 1 tsp. size). Place on parchment lined baking sheet.

3. Use the round end of a straw or a chopstick and lightly place an indentation in the middle of the cookie.

4. Bake at preheated 350'F oven for 15-18 mins.
