Sugees Cookies

These cookies are my mum favourite. I baked these last year and my mum love it very much. This time am using another blogger recipe as I have lost the previous recipe I used and couldn't retrieve it. Luckily this recipe is more or less the same taste and texture.

Recipe Source: choochooheaven


450g Ghee
300g Castor Sugar (or substitute with 360g Icing Sugar)
1-1/4 tsp Sea Salt (do NOT omit this ... without salt, your cookies will taste flat)
3 ~ 4 Egg Yolk, lightly beaten
470g Top Flour / Superfine Flour
150g Ground Almond ( I used Semolina)
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Almond Extract (optional) - omitted
1 tsp Baking Soda
200g Dried Fruits - omitted

Toppings: Silvered  Almond

  1. Sift flour and baking soda. Add in Sembolina, Mix well
  2. Cream Ghee and sugar till light and fluffy
  3. Gradually add egg yolk and vanilla extract, almond extract. Mix well but don't overbeat.
  4. Fold in the dry ingredients from (2), mix well
  5. Roll dough in small balls and gently use a fork to press it, egg white glaze and sprinkle Silvered Almond.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 170 Celsius for 20 minutes or till the side of the cookies are golden brown.
