This is something I saw my mum make a lot during Chinese New Year growing up.
It’s been a while… I feel like I haven’t updated posts as much as I want to.. I’m working on a few posts but I haven’t really got the motivation to do anything at all. I haven’t been feeling inspired for a while and I definitely have not been productive whatsoever. It’s not a good feeling, but hopefully, it’ll pass soon. But that’s besides the point of this post.
Chinese New Year is just around the corner and my mum and I made some cookies. So, I decided to share the recipe with you all! It is extremely simple after all, and I think it’s also fool-proof, so I’m pretty sure anyone can make these.
Let’s get into it!
Because this was a spontaneous post, I did not get to take nicer or well any pictures at all of the ingredients, so I’ll list them out. You will need:
- 400g of peanut butter
- 120g of icing sugar (cause I didn’t want it to be too sweet you can add about 30g more if you like it sweeter)
- 500g of plain flour
- 120g of cooking oil
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl
- Separate and roll the dough into small balls, about 1tbsp
- Line it on your tray with your parchment paper and brush it with egg yolk for that golden colour
- Finally, bake in a preheated oven at 180 degree Celsius for 15 minutes or until light brown
And that is all for this post! Do you know anything about Chinese New Year? And if you ever bake these, send me a picture on Instagram at @sylliepie! I’d love to see!
