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)
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.
