250g ground peanut powder(you can use coarse peanut powder)
200g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

1 egg yolk lightly beaten with 1 tsp water


Combine ground peanut powder, plain flour, baking powder, icing sugar and salt in a big mixing bowl till well mixed

Pour in oil slowly and mix till a pliable dough is formed. May need a little more than the stated amount if the dough is too dry.

Shape into small bite-size pieces. We go by feeling.

Place about 2cm apart on lined baking sheet. Apply egg wash.

Bake at 170C for 18-22 minutes or till golden brown so check your cookies regularly.
