Easy Anko Cookies

Easy Anko Cookies

These moist and tasty cookies are full of anko. The texture is similar to store-bought soft cookies.

Ingredients: Makes 20-25 cookies

Anko (tsubu-an)
200 g
Vegetable oil
50 g
Cake flour
100 g


1. Use a rubber spatula to combine the anko with vegetable oil, then add the flour and mix to an even consistency.
2. Use your hands to form them into your desired shape and size. I roll them into little balls...
3. Then I press them flat with the pad of my thumb. It's okay if cracks appear along the edge. Using about 15 g for each, you can make over 20 cookies.
4. Arrange on a baking sheet, then bake for about 20 minutes in an oven preheated to 170°C. Enjoy!
