"These almond cookies are what you would typically find in Chinese dim sum restaurants in Hawaii. A lot of these neighborhood dim sum stores/restaurants have closed down recently, so it's nice to be able to still enjoy these cookies from your own kitchen. If you enjoy the flavor of almonds, you'll love these cookies. This is a simple recipe and is a favorite in my family. Give it a try!" — WISHME

EXCELLENT! Quick, easy, and oh so good! Don't change a thing. Quite addicintg too. My daughter actually found this recipe and made it for a school project. After she made it and I tried it, I logged onto my account on AllRecipes to save to my recipe box and rate it. Since it only had 1 rating at the time of this writing, I would not have typically have made this. So glad she did, and I will definitely be making this again!
These came out amazing! Easy to make, there were crispy and flaky and crumbled and melted as they were bitten into. I added in 3 tsp almond extract for the extra almond flavor. Thank you for sharing Wishme!
Delicious! My son is allergic to milk although we do use alternative ingredients for butter, this was easy and tasted great! I even let the kids paint the cookies with food coloring. Great recipe!
Wonderfully light cookies and very easy to make.
These were the best almond cookies I have ever had. Instead of the red food coloring dot I put an almond other then that I followed the recipe as it was and it's perfect.
These are exactly what I remember Chinese almond cookies to taste like. This is a winner!
I add 2 raw almonds to the top so they look like alien faces. =)
