Melting Peanut Cookies

So tired stay tune. I'll add the recipes tomorrow. This is definitely a keeper.

63g shortening / Lard (Crisco)
100g Plain flour
75g Roasted peanuts (grinded)
63g Icing sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla essence
1 Egg Yolk (for glazing)
Some halved peanuts for decoration (optional)

  • Roasted the peanuts and remove the shell. Grind them into powder.
  • Sift all flour, add in grinded peanut powder and vanilla essence.
  • Mix in the shortening until dough form. If the dough is too dry add more shortening 10g at a time.
  • Divide the dough into 6g or 8g and roll them into ball gently.
  • Press a tiny hole and glaze them with egg yolk.
  • Bake at a preheated oven 180C for 15-20 mins till crispy and golden brown.
  • Handle carefully the cookies is very fragile.
Notes: Slightly dry looking, taste wise, definitely bake again. It melts in your mouth. Will add more shortening to
             bind them without wrinkles. The picture display is 8g, i weigh them individually.
