Chinese Peanut Cookie

I wasn’t planning to bake any Chinese New Year cookies this year but after drooling at this talented mommy’s yummy Chinese New Year bakes, I couldn’t resist the temptation anymore. So I ended up baking this super easy and one of my favorite cookie, the Chinese Peanut Cookie.

500 gm roasted peanuts – finely ground
500 gm flour
250 gm icing sugar
3 cups oil (approximately)

Chinese Peanut Cookie

1. Mix peanuts, flour and sugar together till well-mixed.
2. Drizzle in oil and mix till you can form a ball with the dough. Do not add in all the oil at one time. Just add enough for the dough to be formed.
3. Either use a mini cookie scoop or shape by hand into little balls.
4. Apply eggwash before baking at 325 for 20 minutes or till golden brown.

    this is a must try, they are delicious! And, if it’s easy as you make it sound, I may even give it a try. I usually only go for the instant bake stuff… you know, the one that goes from refrigerator to oven. hehe.

    Gald u like it! 🙂

    Wow, you have been busy. I feel like making some peanut cookies now. I have not made anything this year unlike last year. 🙂

    I didn’t make that much. Just a little to munch. 🙂
