Crunchy, Melting Peanut Cookies (with Vegan option)

.

.

Apologies for any bad grammar and horrific language you might have seen in last night’s/ the (very) early morning post. Exhaustion and swollen feet took my linguistic capabilities away.

I baked 3 varieties of cookies yesterday: pineapple balls, red bean paste balls (very very melt-y) and peanut cookies (crunchy, yet melt-y).

The three left the house this morning and got raving reviews! Its the first time I’ve made enough food (400 cookies is definitely a lot) to go everywhere and I’m glad they were a hit. Try them, you won’t be disappointed!

Peanut cookies are my favourite cookies. They’re so easy to bake the only equipment you need are a large spoon or fork, a bowl and a weighing balance.

Sometimes, simplicity is best.

3/5 tsp baking powder
1/5 tsp salt

80g ground peanuts
80g diced peanuts

Directions

.

Sift together flour and icing sugar, add in ground and diced peanuts, mix well.
Mix vanilla essence into oil and stir well.Mix both ingredients together to form a soft dough. (the dough will come together when you roll them so don’t worry about it being crumbly)

.

.

Grab a large portion and shape it into a thin log. Cut with knife into roughly equal pieces.

.

.

Brush with egg yolk and decorate with toppings of your choice and bake in a preheated oven at 170°C for 15-20mins or until slightly brown. Cool completely on wire rack before storing into airtight containers.

Have a couple for me, will you?

‘Budget’ version (very slightly altered) of the pineapple tarts along with a hopefully helpful series of step-by-step photographs + recipe for the red bean paste balls tomorrow!
