Peanut Cookies

Happy Chap Goh Mei!!! Wishing you a prosperous year ahead!

Time flies. Today is the last day of Chinese New Year. I always wish the celebration can last longer.

Now back to this cookies post, these cookies are one of the traditional favourites for Chinese New Year. Making the cookies is easy, it's shaping the cookies that is taking a bit of time. But when you see your loved ones enjoying the cookies that you have spent the time on making them, it's all worth it! ^_^

This recipe is adapted from Yens Gourmet - Peanut Cookies.


  • 100g plain flour
  • 50g icing sugar
  • 100g ground peanut
  • 50g peanut oil
  • 10g salted butter (room temperature)
  • Egg wash (whole egg)
  1. Sift flour into a bowl. Add icing sugar and mix till combined.
  2. Add in ground peanut, mix until well combined.
  3. Make a well in the centre and add in peanut oil.
  4. Knead gently to form a dough.
  5. Use 1/2 tbsp measurement spoon and scoop the dough out and shape into a ball with hands. If the dough is too crumbly, add a little more oil until the crumbs stick together.
  6. Use a pen cover and gently press at the centre of the cookie.
  7. Brush the cookies with the egg wash.
  8. Bake the cookies in a pre-heated oven at 160 degree C for 17 minutes or till golden brown.
