Chinese tea cookie recipe needed -- NOT almond cookie

In search of recipe for big, flat, old-fashioned Chinese tea cookie. Main ingredients are Chinese brown sugar, flour, and shortening or oil. Cantonese name is something like kong siu [or sui] pang. The only recipes we can find use eggs, but we are quite certain our grandparents' versions did NOT have eggs. Yup, zero nutritional value but need for niece who is allergic to eggs and milk products. (Also nuts & bananas).

  1. Going out on a limb here.....totally...baking powder could be substituted for the rising agent of the egg white but the Chinese brown sugar cookie is a new one for me.

      The cookie sounds quite tasty.

      HEY! On another note, are you the Chefpaulo who used to post on Retroland?
