Kung Fu Panda Almond Cookies

It’s the 8th anniversary of the Food ‘n Flix Club and to celebrate we can choose any of the previously viewed movies. I selected Kung Fu Panda as I love this movie and wanted to try some oriental dishes. The first recipe I created was Kung Fu Panda Almond Cookies.

This recipe was inspired by the scene in the movie where Shifu is convincing Po that he can be the Dragon Warrior. He uses food as motivation and without even realizing it, Po is doing all sorts of amazing moves to get what he wants, Monkey’s Almond Cookies.

    Oooooh, yes! I have always wanted to make these cookies – and that is one of my favorite scenes. We’ve watched Kung-Fu Panda countless times in our house ;). I’m so happy that you joined in the anniversary celebration this month!
