Chinese Almond Cookies
These light, tender cookies are great served with ice cream as an easy holiday dessert or with simply with a cup of coffee or tea after dinner. These cookies were traditionally made with lard in China because pork is plentiful. changing the recipe to butter instead might give a richer flavor and slightly crisper texture. They are much more flavorful than the fortune cookie, keep them on hand, baked and ready, in your freezer.
