As some other treats originating from China, this biscuit also has a special good luck component attached to it. Literally, because this is a cookie with an almond embedded in the center which represents said good luck, and cookies symbolize coins. Chinese almond cookies do not appear to have a set origin date or place. Some sources say that they have been adapted from the Chinese walnut cookies, which were invented in the 16th century during the Ming Dynasty.
They are a common biscuit in many different cuisines and take many forms. Types of almond biscuits include almond macaroons, Spanish almendrados, qurabiya (a shortbread biscuit made with almonds), and Turkish acıbadem kurabiyesi.
