5 Easy Festive Airfryer Cookies Recipes (Lard-Free!)

June 19, 2016 0 Comments A+ a-

Cookies-baking is one of the most well-loved preparation works before the festive period. It is a form of bonding activity between mother and children, or simply a way of remembering our beloved ancestors' secret recipes.

For me, cookies-baking using the airfryer has also been a form of conversation-starter at festive occasions. I'm not sure about you, but meeting relatives that I haven't seen for a year can be quite awkward (for an introvert like me) at times. So sharing with them my airfryer adventures is often a way for me to break into conversations.

Below are 5 of my Lard-free Easy Festive Cookies Recipes using the Airfryer. Have fun and enjoy the festive period with family and friends!

1) Pineapple Tarts

Buttery, crumbly and melt-in-your-mouth, pineapple tarts are the must-have favourites at festive occasions and suitable for Chinese New Year or Hari Raya. Don't be undaunted by how they beautiful and intricate they look, they are actually very easy to bake!

2) Almond Cookies

This is our most popular recipe so far and one of the most tried-and-tested. Highly recommended for beginners, it is one of our easiest recipes as well. We love the rich almond taste and how pure they look too!

3) Peanut Cookies

For the Chinese, peanut cookies are known as 花生饼 and represent growth and new life. These cookies are one of the must-have in our home because once you start, you cannot stop. That's how addictive they are!

4) Matcha Green Tea Almond Cookies

The festive season usually means much sinful eating. Whilst there is nothing wrong in such yearly indulgences, why not make snacks-munching a little healthier with antioxidant-rich green tea for our families and friends? This recipe is eggless, so the cookie dough can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. It is a useful dough to keep if we foresee last-minute bakes!

5) 3-Ingredient Butter Cookies

Another of our very popular recipe as well, it is fool-proof and suitable for all beginners. A very versatile recipe, you can make different designs using just those 3 ingredients (and some creativity). These cookies are also so rich and buttery, simply everyone's favourite!
