Melt In The Mouth Peanut Cookies.


I do not really like peanuts but my boys love it so much. So I have to make this for them every Chinese New year. I made a big batch yesterday so they will have a good time with their favorite cookies. Here is the recipe to share. These made around 200 cookies.

Ingredients:

700 g peanuts, roasted and shelled
500 g castor sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
700 g plain flour - sifted
2 cups peanut oil

For glazing:

2 egg yolks
2 tsp milk

Method:

Blend peanuts til fine and crumbly. In a large mixing bowl, combine blended peanuts, sugar, vanilla essence, and flour. Make a well in the centre and pour in the peanut oil. Mix well with a wooden spoon. Shape into balls of about 10 gms each. Make a shallow dent with the back of a chopstick and press a half piece of peanuts into each dent. Brush cookies with egg glaze and bake it in a preheated oven of 175 degrees Celcius for 20 minutes or til golden brown.

LCOM, the nice fragrant of peanut oil with some sesame oil makes these cookies so delicious. Once u pop into yr mouth u would not stop at one piece.

ECL, try this cookie as it is quite easy in the mixing. To make all the cookies even I weigh each piece before shaping into balls.
