Melt-in-the-mouth Peanut Cookies

This recipe, is soooo delicious and so easy, it really is a must-bake for CNY if you like peanuts. There are only 5 ingredients!

I have used peanut butter to save all the trouble of roasting and blending peanuts. And certainly using a quality brand peanut butter that you already like, avoids potential risk of poor quality peanuts.

The peanut butter creates a smooth melt in the mouth feel with intense peanut flavour. The addition of caster sugar gives crunch. The salt is a must for that savoury tinge. I hope you like it as much as my family does, we couldn’t stop munching on it.

Recipe (30 small pieces)

  • 120g crunchy or creamy peanut butter
  • 100g plain flour
  • 30g icing sugar
  • 20g caster sugar
  • 1/2 to 3/4 tsp salt
  • 30-35g cooking oil


1. Mix flour, sugars and salt in a mixing bowl with spatula.

2. Add in peanut butter and mix till a sandy or grainy texture.

3. Add in 30g oil and mix to bring the mixture together into a dough. Add a little more if mixture will not come together.

4. Shape into round balls of 10g and use a straw to press a decorative circle on top.

5. Bake at 170 deg C for 15 to 20 min. Cookies are very soft when warm, so handle and eat after they have cooled.

    Hi, do you use sweetened or unsweetened peanut butter? Thanks in advance.

      Both ok, just reduce sugar a little if you used a sweetened peanut butter.
