Chinese Restaurant Almond Cookies Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 11)
Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2002
My kids loved helping make this recipe, AND it had a wonderful flavor just as it is. We didnt have whole almonds, just slivered ones and they made 'flowers' with them on the tops. I made this recipe again, used 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup shortning instead of a full cup shortning. I also substituted 1/2 tsp vanilla plus 1/2 tsp almond extract just because I was lacking in extract, and they came out amazingly light, and still wonderfully flavorful!

After mixing all the ingredients together, the mixture was very dry & crumbly I couldn't form balls...I had to add another egg...and it was still crumbly. These are not like the Chinese Restaurant almond cookies that I've tasted.

This is an EXCELLENT, easy and FAST recipe! Everyone loved these cookies! I used the lard, not butter or margarine, VERY tasty!

These cookies are so good, you can't stop eating them! I didn't have lard. We used half butter and half Crisco. They were still awesome!
