Peanut Cookies


I think Peanut Cookies must be one of the easiest cookies to make. All you need is roasted peanuts, sugar, flour, peanut oil, a pinch of salt, and a couple of egg yolks to glaze the cookies. Sounds simple, right? Well, it is and I do hope you will give this recipe a try.

Ingredients

300 g Roasted Peanuts, ground finely
150 g Sugar
350 g All-Purpose Flour
A pinch of Sea Salt
200 ml Peanut Oil
2 Egg Yolks, beaten (for glazing)

Method

Preheat the oven to 325˚F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground peanut, sugar, flour and salt.

Add the oil to the dry mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon. Then combine the mixture with fingers to form crumbly dough.

Pinch about 15g of the dough and shape into cherry-sized balls. Then use a chopstick to make a shallow dent. Brush the dough with the beaten egg yolks.

Bake the cookies for about 22 to 25 minutes. Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

Makes about 90 pcs.
