Peanut cookies are one of my favorite Chinese New Year cookies. I grew up helping my aunt making hundreds of them. Shaping them into round balls, slightly flattened them with the cap of toothpaste to form the circle pattern on top of the cookies before brushing the top with an egg wash. Peanut cookies are crumbly and absolutely addictive. Once I start eating, I just can’t stop. Check out this peanut cookies recipe by my contributor Siew Loon.
