Festive Cookies - Peanut Cookie Balls

Peanuts or Groundnuts are very versatile and have many uses. Peanuts are high in protein and niacin. Peanuts can be made into peanut butter, candies, biscuits, cakes, soups, oil, roasted as snacks, peanut milk as a lactose free beverage and many more.

Peanut Cookie Balls - Yum Yum!

These golden brown melt in the mouth Peanut Cookie Balls are also a staple type of CNY Festive cookie. It's hard finding a good one nowadays as the health factor kicks in as the best Peanut Cookie Balls would contain Lard. Lard always make a big difference to everything that we eat as it will enhance and make it tastier and more fragrant.

A good Peanut Cookie Ball would have the fragrance roasted peanuts with a melt in mouth salty sweet taste and the peanut at the top of the cookie should be roasted and crunchy. The ingredients to make these cookie balls are actually really simple and cheap. All you will need will be flour, sugar (castor), peanuts, oil and a bit of lard (to make it tasty) and a pinch of salt. It is the workmanship of making these delightful balls that is tedious. The peanuts would have to be roasted (by frying in a wok) till they are golden brown and emits a peanut fragrance. The peanuts are then grounded into fine meal to create the melt in mouth texture.

I don't bake my own peanut cookies due to this tedious-ness. Hence, I hope that this year my mum would be able to find a good peanut cookie ball supplier.
