Hi Aunty,

This Almond Biscuits look really good! Thought of giving it a try for the coming CNY. May I know what Potato starch flour for? is it compulsory or i can omit/substitute it with other thing?

I found there are 2 types of Hoen Kwe flour at my hometown. It's blue and green colour packing. Which should i use?

Regards,
WL

Hi WL,

Potato starch flour helps to make the cookie more fluffy. You can substitute with hoen kwee flour.
