Peanut Cookies

February 08, 2010

6 more sleeps to celebrate Chinese New Year!! The kids are excited and looking forward to Chinese New Year (CNY).... I think... they are really looking forward to 'what's in the red packet'... 'Red' packet from daddy is worth a lot more than from mom's!!...hehehe ....
Peanut cookies is one of the 'must have' cookies ... My late mother-in-law used to make these cookies every CNY.... now Mr H and Miss E took over ... and made these cookies yesterday for the forthcoming celebration....
  • 300g roasted peanuts - finely grounded
  • 200g castor sugar - more if you have 'sweet tooth'
  • 250g plain flour
  • 100g arrowroot flour
  • 200 ml canola oil (may require less than this.... )
  • eggwash (egg yolk - lightly beaten)
  • cut up peanuts for decoration
Mix the grounded peanuts, plain flour, arrowroot flour, sugar and half the oil in a large mixing bowl. Check the consistency of the dough... Add oil bit by bit until the dough is pliable and does not stick to your hand or the side of the bowl. Roll into a ball. Top with eggwash and cut-up peanut. Bake at 180C for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Leave it to cool before transfering to the rack....
