Chinese New Year is just around the corner! Have you prepared or bought the Chinese New Year cookies? If not, here is a simple yet yummy Peanut Butter Cookies recipe for you! You may adjust the level of sugar if you prefer a healthy diet~


100 gr roasted unsalted peanuts

80 gr icing sugar

180 gr all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

50 gr cooking oil 

1 egg yolk + 1 tsp water


 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.  

Prepare the cookie dough:

1. Mix the ground peanut, sugar, flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir them.  

2. After that, gradually add in the cooking oil. 

*Remember not to pour in all at once as the portion might be over.  

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.  

2. Remove the cookies from the oven and set them aside to cool for 10 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

Store the cookies in the air-tight container at room temperature for up to 1 month.
