Melt in the mouth - peanut cookies


I am submitting this post to Aspiring Bakers #3: My Favorite CNY Cookie (Jan 2011) hosted by j3ss from j3ss kitchen


Recipe : ( adapted from Delicious Asian baked treats by Oi Lin )
Ingredients :
- 50g all purpose flour
- 2 large pinch of salt
- 60g caster sugar
- 120g ground peanuts ( I used packed one from Phoon huat )
- 30g Ghee
- 3 tbsp groudnut oil
* Glaze : 1 egg , lightly beaten
Method :
Preheat oven to 180 degree C & line a baking tray with baking parchment . Sift flour & salt . Add sugar & ground peanuts and mix well . Mix Ghee & peanut oil . Add to flour mixture . Mix & bring the ingredients together to form a dough . If the dough is dry , add a little more oil . Scoop 1 level spoon of dough & shape it into a ball . Arrange on the tray . Bake for 10 mins , remove the tray from the oven and brush egg glaze on the tops of cookies . Bake for another 5 mins . Allow cookies to cool on tray for awhile before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely

* Result : I am quite satisfied with the outcome eventhough i am not a peanut fan . It has strong peanut flavour and really melt in your mouth .
