Chinese New Year Cookies - Peanut Cookies ~ 花生饼


I was feeling all energetic just a few weeks ago, and then I'm not, my 2 boys & I take turn to fall ill & it's really suffering to be sick when you're pregnant, & I still have to look after another 2 kids that are unwell.

So, Chinese New Year is just around the corner, I could see many updates of my friends baking CNY cookies all over my Facebook, unfortunately I was too tired to do any of those.

Thankfully, I've finally felt better & I picked the easiest cookies to start with, the peanut cookies ~ 花生饼. This has to be one of the easiest cookies to bake from scratch. The recipe is actually very simple. It's basically one part of ground roasted peanut + one part of all-purpose flour + half a part of sugar (reduced sugar as you wish). Simple as that. So if you would just like to make a small batch for self indulgence, this would be the simplest measurements that you can ever find.

And the result? This peanut cookies melts in your mouth & it's so addictive! Beware though, remember to drink lotsa water while you enjoy your CNY cookies.

Enjoy!!!




 * Step-by-Step Tutorial *
Combine grounded peanut, all-purpose flour, sugar & pinch of salt in a big bowl.

Mix them well.

Add in the vegetable oil bits by bits, knead the mixture with your hand. 

When it can be rolled into a ball, it's done.

Shape the peanut batter into any design you like. I did mine with the simplest round shape, or you can call it the oval shape :p

Optional : Use a cap of a toothpaste (I use my son's brand new kids toothpaste) or any similar shape you can find at your house. 
Press the cap onto the top of the cookies a little to get the round shape.

Brush the egg wash on top of the cookies.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15-16 minutes or until they turn browned.

Melt in your mouth Peanut Cookies.

    1. Hi, do add in the vegetable oil bit by bit, once the texture is firm enough for you to knead into a ball, it's done :)

      Delete
    2. Can you give me an estimate? eg, +-300gm?

      Delete
    3. Sorry dear, I don't have the estimation as you will need to slowly add in the oil bit by bit & keep kneading it until you feel the texture is right. Don't worry, it's very easy, give it a try k :)
