Chinese Walnut Cookies


I already mentioned that I made some biscuits last weekend.
These were the last batch I made on Sunday night.
I like eating chinese walnut cookies so when I found an easy recipe compared to the traditional recipe, I gave it a try.
I think this wasn't as good as the one I can get from Chinatown.
But my mum said it's nice.
I think maybe I should have roasted the walnut 1st before adding to the dough & put more walnuts in.
I'll try to make some again.

Recipe:
75g icing sugar
55g butter (unsalted)
150g plain flour
1g soda in 20g water
25g whole walnut (suggest 30g or more)
1 egg (beaten) for brushing

Roast walnut in the oven at 150'C for 15 min, then grind into small chips once cool.
Butter (softened) + sugar, beat until smooth & fluffy.
Add soda + water & blend well.
Stir in sifted plain flour.
Add walnut chips & mix well.
Roll into small sized balls, place 5 cm apart, flatten slightly, then use a brush to put some egg (beaten) on top.
Bake at 180'C in preheated oven for 18 - 20 min.
