PEANUT COOKIES



During festive occasions my mum used to bake this peanut cookies without fail.

It is usually made with corn/canola  oil but now I tried using butter.  They were fantastic nice and crunchy but not too sweet. I can't believe how easy they are to make.

To all my Muslim friends, wishing you a Happy Eid, may you be blessed with happiness and success always!

PEANUT COOKIES
Yield    :    90 cookies

1 1/4  cup  all purpose flour
1/4  cup  cornflour
140 g  softened butter

METHOD

Over a cup of ground peanuts? Interesting! I've never seen a cookie recipe that used peanuts like flour (in a way). Being a peanut lover, I would probably find these cookies irresistible! They were disappear very quickly. Thanks for sharing your mum's recipe!
