100g ghee
120g caster sugar
1 egg yolk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
70g ground almonds
150g plain flour (all-purpose flour)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
Egg glaze: egg yolk

Mix first 4 ingredients, then add almonds and mix.
Sift flour, baking soda and salt. Mix and add to above. Mix to form a dough.
Scoop dough with a teaspoon, shape it with your hands (see video) and arrange on lined tray. Brush with yolk glaze.
Bake in preheated 180 degrees Celsius / 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven for 12 to 14 minutes till yolk glaze on cookies look golden yellow and bottoms of cookies are golden brown. Do not overbake!! Do not underbake either or cookies will not be crisp.
