Crunchy Peanut Cookies

This year I baked 2 types of peanuts cookies, melted peanut butter cookies and crunchy peanut cookies. If you prefer melt in the mouth version, you may try this recipe, but if you prefer crunchy original taste of ground peanut cookies, you will like the below recipe :) 

Thanks Kimmy for sharing with us, it's yummy and addictive, just like eating real peanut :) I'm too lazy making the nuts from the scratch, I just bought ready ground peanut from uncle. who selling the pancake :) I found his ground peanut is very fragrant compare to the one bought off the shelf. 

Ingredients (with modification):
200 gr Gound Peanuts
200 gr Plain flour
70 gr Icing sugar
1/3 tsp salt
1/2 tbsp butter
50-70 ml Vegetable oil
1 egg - beaten for glazing

Method :
- Mix peanuts with sugar, salt and butter.  Mix well, then add in flour in batches.
- Combined well then gradually add in oil [you may need all the oil]. 
- The dough is ready once you can roll it into a ball and does not stick to the hand.  Rest dough for 30 minutes.
- Pinch a small piece and roll into a ball. Place on parchment paper, leaving some space in between.  Do the same until the baking tray is filled with dough.
- Press each ball lightly with the end of a chopstick.  Brush egg glaze evenly over peanut cookies.
- Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
- Remove cookies to cool on wire rack before storing in airtight containers.  The cookies are very 'fragile', handle with care.

Yields : approx. 1 bottle

  1. Gong Xi Fa Cai to you and your family :D

    Nice to know that there are two very different versions of peanut cookies that you have made. Love to try both too :D


    1. Gong Xi Fa Cai to you too. This year I didn't bake lots of cookies, so got chance to try both at one go :) since the ingredients almost the same, except peanut butter jam :)
      If you have time, sure you will love both types

  2. Hi DG! Gong Xi Fa Cai to you and all at home! These peanut cookies remind me of the melt-in-the-mouth ones that my grandpa used to love. I see that you have baked quite a few CNY goodies :D

    1. Thanks Phong Hong, I didn't bake much this year :( It seems very rush for me, that I got not much time to prepare.
