1 cup grounded roasted peanuts
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup icing sugar
1/4 cup oil (any oil without smell)
1 tbsp softened butter
A handful of roasted peanuts for decorating
1 egg yolk (lightly beaten)
(Note: for vegetarian version, use milk or cream wash)
Mix all the ingredients together.
If the dough doesn't stick together, it’s okay to add more flour but bit by bit.
Pinch a small amount of the dough and shape into a small ball.
Flatten with your palm and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Do the same for the rest of the dough.
Put a piece of peanut atop each ball and then brush with egg yolk.
Bake at 170C for 20 minutes or until brown.
Remove, cool down and store in air tight container(s).
