When Chinese New Year comes along, it’s always the delight of receiving red packets and eating copious amounts of food and snacks. One of my favourite snacks is the melt-in-your-mouth Peanut Cookies and honestly it’s difficult to just stop at one. It’s also very easy to make with very few ingredients. I found a fantastic recipe by Alan Ooi in his book In Love With Cookies, which I do recommend taking a look at his book because there is a great number of yummy cookie recipes in there to try.

  • You can also add a peanut on top of each cookie before baking for extra bite and decoration.
  • If you find the dough quite soft, just leave it for 10 to 30 minutes until it firms up a bit.

Wafer thin almond cookies are incredibly addictive. I found this recipe by Alan Ooi from his recipe book In Love with Cookies and adjusted it slightly for sweetness. The thinner you make the cookies, the more evenly crunchy it will be. If you prefer a bit of density and for some bite, just make the cookies slightly thicker. This recipe is pretty easy to make, and perfect for some fun with children.

50g plain flour
200g almond flakes
20g white sesame seeds
