Coffee and Almond Cookies

Cookies or baked potato?? Hehee...these are cookies for a friend who just quit from coffee. To me, coffee is like something magic that giving me energy and power to do my daily activities. How can i wake up without morning coffee? I've tried to quit few times and all i got is headache and yawning for whole day. And guess what, i use my potato slicer to get that shape, smart eh... hahaa
Recipe adapted from DIY hand made cookies by Lucy Wu

150 g unsalted butter
100 g lard/shortening
80 g icing sugar

- Beat butter, shortening and sugar till fluffy, add egg and beat for another minute. Stir in coffee and mix well. Sift in cake flour and add almond. Mix well to form dough.
