Some called it Suji, some called it Sugi, and some called it Sugee… no matter which name you called it, they all have a common ingredient, which is Ghee. 

This is the first time I’m making sugi cookies for CNY and I have added in ground almonds to the basic recipe… hubby says its texture is like shortbread cookies and he like it…


100 grams Ghee
120 grams castor sugar
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
70 grams ground almonds
150 grams plain flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt


1.   Mix first 4 ingredients, then add almonds and mix.
2.   Sift flour, baking soda and salt. Mix and add to above. Mix to form a dough.
3.   Scoop dough with a teaspoon, shape it with your hands and arrange on lined tray. Brush with yolk glaze.
4.   Bake in preheated 180 degrees C oven for 12 to 14 minutes till yolk glaze on cookies look golden yellow and bottoms of cookies are golden brown.
5.   Allow cookies to cool completely on a rack and store in container.

  1. I tried the recipe, and instead of using vanilla essence, i used some fresh lemon juice. It complements the almond tast quite nicely! (The kids loved them)

  2. hey
    can you give us more recipes on sugees?
    cause we have a project to do on these sugees
    can you give us some ideas?

  3. Hi Rebekah, you can try added some chocolate chips or nuts to the recipe….

    you can also add citrus flavours like lemon or orange to it…

    hope you’ll have fun experimented on these cookies.. =)
