180 gr all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

50 gr cooking oil 

1 egg yolk + 1 tsp water


Instructions:

 1. Preheat the conventional oven to 350 F (180 C) (bottom heat only). Reduce the temperature by 20 degrees if using a convection oven (top and bottom heat). 

2. Lightly beat the egg yolk with 1 tsp water to make the egg wash. Set it aside.


Roasted peanuts:

1. Use a food processor to grind the roasted peanuts until they are finely ground.

3. Then, stir the mixture until the dough comes together to a point where it can be pressed into a dough. *If the dough is too dry, add a little extra oil until it reaches a consistency that will not break apart. 


Shaping the dough:

1. Shape the dough into balls. 

*You may decide on the size of the balls but it is recommended to make the balls in around 10 gram for each.

2. Place the balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper about 1/2 inch apart.

*You may also make the balls in a variety of ways. Make a tiny indentation in the centre with a straw, or gently push the dough ball down with a fork while producing the crossing pattern.

Bake the cookies:

1. Brush the cookies with egg wash and bake for about 15-17 minutes. The appearance of the cookies will become golden brown. 

*You may add another 5 minutes if you like a crispier texture.
