IMG_6051CNY cookies are on sale every time this year… and every time this year, you either spend lots of money buying these for someone, or get lots of CNY goodies from business associates… as for me, i’m neither…. i can’t bear to spend to buy when i can bake, and in china, nobody gives such cookies… .·´¯(>▂<)´¯·……. 555555… NEH’ MIND! i make my own! and i shape them the way i want them to be! ٩(๑`ȏ´๑)۶

Recipe adapted from Through The Kitchen Door


120g almond meal (ground almond)
180g plain flour
120 caster sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda


杏仁粉 120克
面粉 180克
绵白糖 120克
盐 1/4小匙
泡打粉 1小匙
苏打粉 1小匙

素油 120毫升

蛋黄 1颗 (打散)

120ml vegetable cooking oil (sunflower, canola or corn oil)

For Glazing:
1 egg yolk (beaten)


IMG_6048– Combine Ingredients A and B in a mixer and mix to form a dough. (In this part, you may use your hands to knead till all combined well.  It look more like crumbs but it is ok or you may add a little more oil in)
A 和 B 食材放入容器中搅拌成团 (此步骤有可能需要亲自动手以确保全部食材均匀混合。面团会偏颗粒状态 ~ 这个是没问题的 ~ 只需加多点油就可以)

– Scale the dough of about 7g each rounded portion.  (I used a watermelon ball roller to scoop out an amount instead of weighing to 7g everytime.  After that, using both my palms to lightly roll round again.)
面团分割成7克一份 (我用了西瓜勺子勺出同等份量~重量没沉 ~ 之后将面团用手掌搓圆)

– Arrange on a lined baking trays and glaze the surfaces with egg wash

– Bake at a preheated oven at 180 Celcius for about 15-20 minutes until lightly browned. Cool well before storage
送入预热之180摄氏度烤箱烤 15-20分钟,至稍褐色。待完全冷却后在收入密封盒

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

IMG_6055– i halved the recipe and made 17 winnie the pooh cookies, each weighing around 15-17g

  • i added 2 more teaspoon of coconut oil to the recipe (as i needed the dough to stick together)

  • my cookies were baked in 13 mins
    我的曲奇烤了 13分钟

  • pooh’s expressions are piped with melted dark chocolate
