Melt-in-the-mouth Chinese New Year Peanut Cookies

In parts of Asia, the cookies that melt in your mouth is greatly appreciated along with the crunchy and crispy cookies. Recently found this recipe for peanut cookies that is usually sold for Chinese New Year, and finally got to bake some last night. The ingredients were simple, and I loved the aroma of the cookies in the oven while baking. Since it was a trail run as CNY is more than two weeks away, I halfed the recipe and tested it out. Now, a day later, the cookies are all consumed by various testers in the family. I can't wait to go to the store to get more peanuts to roast and bake more of these yummy treats! This recipe is at IK. Thanks Little Corner of Mine for insisting that I try it! The main ingredients for this recipe are freshly ground peanuts, powdered sugar, and vegetable oil.

Ahhh...I can see that you were using the cookie scoop, am I right? It definitely cut the job in half or more. Looks very nice and even shape too, I like! :)

I need to get one for myself too since mine broke on me! :( I'm looking for a small one, the one I saw at BBB was medium size, so big leh!

This cookie is irresistable leh, now you know why this cookie gets consumed so fast!
