CNY 2012 – Peanut Cookie & Cranberry Cornflake Cookie

These peanut cookies are worth trying. I’ve tasted homemade peanut cookies before and I must say that this is good,  I like it.   The cranberry cornflake cookies could have been better if I’ve made them flatter.   Gong Xi Fa Cai

Peanut Cookie

Ingredients

300g fried peanuts, removed skin and grind finely ( I used ground peanut )

188g flour

175g icing sugar

1/2 tbsp butter

1 tbsp peanut butter

peanut oil for mixing ( I used slightly more than 100g olive oil, you will need to adjust accordingly )

1/2 tsp salt

1/2  egg, beaten with pinch of salt for glazing

Method

1. Sift flour and icing sugar together in a mixing bowl.  Add in the ground peanut, butter and peanut butter, mix well.  Slowly add in oil and mix until it can form into a soft dough.  You should be able to roll into ball without breaking.

2. Form into small balls, place onto baking tray lined with baking sheet. Glaze with beaten egg.

3. Bake in preheated oven at 180C for about 20-25 mins till it cracks a little and golden brown.  Cool on a wire rack and store in air-tight containers.
