I bought a small container of peanut cookies last night. It costs me RM15! Doesn’t taste that good and it doesn’t have the L-factor. The above photo is my homemade batch of peanut cookies I made for Chinese New Year last year.
You can find the recipe in my MalaysiaBest food blog under Chinese New Year peanut cookies. It is really easy to make and cost wise, very cheap too. The only thing is it is very tedious waiting for the batches to bake. Normally, our household oven is quite small so we cannot bake big batches.
These are what I made last year. Several jars of the cookies. Imagine RM15 per jar, how much they profit they made? If you like to do it, try adding some lard to the cookies because it will make it really, really yummy. The biscuits will be crunchier and smell heavenly. Of course, make sure that none of them is given to anyone who aren’t suppose to eat pork and lard, ok?
I normally asked my neighbour who is a char koay teow hawker to give me a tiny bowl of lard for making the cookies. Lard is bad for health, ok? So, don’t indulge. Except for once a year, of course.
