Although my previous post Walnut Cookies was fragrant and acceptable, i had to find a recipe that is more 'asian'. This Hup Toh Sou is more "sou' and melts in the mouth but not so fragrant. The nuttiness only occur when you bite into the nut and if you like a bit more crunch, then use granulated sugar instead of confectioners' sugar/powdered sugar.
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
3 tbsp powdered sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
50 - 75 ml oil preferably peanut oil
Egg yolk for glazing
Walnut pieces for topping
Sieve flour, baking powder baking soda, salt and sugar.
Add vanilla extract to the oil and then add to the flour mixture, a little at a time( hold back 2 tbsps of oil, use it only if needed) until dough is formed.
Form dough into small balls, size of your choice.
Glaze the balls and top with a walnut piece.
Bake in a preheated oven 350f for 12 - 15 minutes until golden brown. Baking time will be longer if the cookie size if bigger.
