A sweet and salty treat that melts in the mouth, Almond Sugee Cookies are enjoyed during festive celebrations like Lunar New Year and Hari Raya. 


  • 200 g plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 50 g semolina flour
  • 100 g icing sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50 g ground almonds
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 150 ml corn oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

Preheat oven to 175 C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Set aside.


In a large mixing bowl, sift plain flour, semolina flour, icing sugar, baking soda and baking powder together. Add ground almonds and mix well.


Add corn oil and vanilla essence and knead to get a smooth dough.


Roll the dough out to 1.5-cm thickness. Cut out the cookies with a 2-cm square mould.


Place cookies on prepared tray, spaced apart. Bake at 175 C for 10 to 12 mins.


Remove cookies from oven and leave to cool on a wire rack before serving. Store in an airtight container.

Chef’s Tip: For more texture, add 50 g crushed roasted almonds to the batter.
