INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTES

Ingredient quantities please refer to the recipes card (Click here)!

  • Ground Peanut  – Provides the base flavor and texture. Toasted ground peanuts enhance the nutty essence of the cookies.
  • Peanut Oil  – Adds moisture to the dough and contributes to the overall richness of the cookies. Peanut oil complements the peanut flavor. If you prefer or don’t have peanut oil, you can use other neutral oils such as vegetable oil or canola oil.
  • Icing Sugar  –  Sweetens the cookies and contributes to their smooth texture. Icing sugar is finer than granulated sugar, ensuring a delicate sweetness. In a pinch, you can substitute icing sugar with granulated sugar. However, keep in mind that the texture of the cookies may differ slightly.
  • Plain Flour  – Forms the structure of the cookies. Plain flour is commonly used in cookie recipes for its moderate protein content. For a gluten-free version, you can use a gluten-free flour blend or almond flour labeled as gluten-free.
  • ¼ tsp Salt  – Enhances the flavor by balancing the sweetness and adding a subtle savory note. Use a pinch of kosher salt or sea salt as a substitute. Adjust the quantity based on your taste preferences.

For the Egg Wash:

  • Egg Yolk  –  Creates a golden-brown finish on the cookies during baking. The egg yolk also adds richness to the overall flavor.
  • ¼ tsp Water  – Dilutes the egg yolk for easy application. Helps in achieving an even glaze on the cookies.

Remember, while substitutes can be used, they may alter the taste, texture, and overall outcome of the muffins. It’s always a good idea to experiment and adjust the recipe according to your personal preferences and dietary restrictions.

RECIPES TIPS

  • Proper Peanut Toasting:Toast the peanuts until they are golden brown to bring out their rich, nutty flavor. Keep a close eye on them to avoid over-toasting, which can lead to bitterness.
  • Efficient Peanut Peeling:Use the Thermomix to peel the peanuts efficiently after toasting. This ensures a smoother texture in the final cookie dough.
  • Grinding Peanuts in Thermomix:Utilize the Thermomix to grind the peanuts into a fine texture. This ensures that the peanuts are evenly distributed throughout the dough, contributing to a consistent and delightful cookie texture.
  • Balancing Sweetness and Nuttiness:Taste the cookie dough before shaping to ensure the sweetness is balanced with the nutty flavor. Adjust the sugar levels if necessary to suit your taste preferences.
  • Consistent Mixing of Dough:When combining the ingredients in the Thermomix, ensure that the dough is mixed thoroughly. This promotes an even distribution of flavors and textures in the final cookies.
  • Choosing the Right Oil:While the recipe calls for peanut oil, you can experiment with other neutral oils like vegetable or canola oil if you prefer or have dietary restrictions.
  • Straining Egg Wash Mixture:Strain the egg yolk and water mixture through a small sieve before applying it to the cookies. This helps achieve a smooth and even glaze, enhancing the appearance of the baked cookies.
  • Uniform Cookie Shapes:Use a small teaspoon to measure and shape the cookie dough into balls. Press the dough until firm and gently shape it into a ball to ensure uniform sizes for even baking.
  • Creating Small Circles:Lightly press the dough balls with the narrow end of a funnel to create small circles. This step not only adds a decorative touch but also promotes even baking.
  • Baking Temperature and Time:Preheat the oven to 170ºC and bake the cookies on the middle rack. Keep a close eye on them to prevent over-browning. The goal is to achieve a golden-brown finish while maintaining a soft and chewy interior.
  • Cooling for Crispiness:Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. This helps them set and achieve the desired crispiness.
  • Storage in Airtight Containers:Once completely cooled, store the peanut cookies in an airtight container to maintain their freshness. Layering them with parchment paper helps prevent sticking.
  • Reheating for Crispiness (Optional):If the cookies lose some of their crispiness during storage, consider reheating them in a preheated oven (around 160°C) for a few minutes. Watch closely to prevent over-baking.
  • Experimenting with Variations:Feel free to experiment with variations such as adding chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or a hint of spice to customize the cookies according to your preferences.

By following these tips, you’ll enhance the overall baking experience and ensure that your peanut cookies turn out perfectly delicious with the right balance of flavors and textures. Happy baking!

MADE AHEAD INSTRUCTIONS

Making peanut cookie dough ahead of time can be a convenient way to prepare for future cravings or events. Follow these steps to prepare and store the dough for later use:

  1. Prepare the Dough:Follow the peanut cookie recipe up to the point where the dough is fully mixed and ready for shaping.
  2. Form into a Log:Instead of shaping individual cookies, gather the cookie dough and form it into a log shape. Ensure that the log is compact and well-sealed.
  3. Wrap in Plastic Wrap:Wrap the cookie dough log tightly in plastic wrap. This helps prevent air from reaching the dough and keeps it from drying out in the refrigerator.
  4. Label and Date: It’s essential to label the wrapped dough with the type of cookie and the date of preparation. This ensures that you can keep track of freshness and flavor.
  5. Refrigerate or Freeze:Place the wrapped cookie dough log in the refrigerator if you plan to bake within a few days. For longer storage, consider freezing the dough.
  6. Thawing Frozen Dough:If you choose to freeze the dough, allow it to thaw in the refrigerator overnight before slicing and baking. Thawing in the refrigerator helps maintain the texture of the cookies.
Baking Instructions:
  1. Preheat Oven:When ready to bake, preheat your oven to the specified temperature in the original peanut cookie recipe.
  2. Slice the Dough:Unwrap the refrigerated or thawed peanut cookie dough log. Use a sharp knife to slice the dough into individual cookies of your desired thickness.
  3. Shape and Bake:Follow the original recipe instructions for shaping the dough balls and baking the cookies. Be sure to maintain the recommended oven temperature and baking time.
  4. Cool and Enjoy:Allow the freshly baked cookies to cool on a wire rack before serving. Enjoy the convenience of having freshly baked peanut cookies without the entire preparation process.
Tips for Success:
  • Uniform Slicing: For consistent cookies, slice the dough evenly. Using a ruler or bench scraper can help achieve uniform thickness.
  • Even Thawing: If you froze the dough, ensure it thaws evenly in the refrigerator to maintain the cookie’s texture.
  • Freshness Check: Always check the labeled date on the dough to ensure it’s within a reasonable timeframe for optimal freshness.
  • Storage Conditions: Store the wrapped dough in a dedicated section of the refrigerator or freezer to avoid cross-contamination with strong-smelling foods.
  • Quality Control: While dough can be made ahead, the flavor and texture are best when baked shortly after preparation. Consider the maximum recommended storage time for best results.

By preparing peanut cookie dough ahead of time, you can enjoy the convenience of freshly baked treats whenever the craving strikes or surprise guests arrive. This time-saving approach allows you to have homemade cookies with minimal effort.

STORAGE & REHEATING

Proper storage helps maintain the freshness and texture of peanut cookies, ensuring they remain delightful even after some time. Follow these guidelines for storing and reheating peanut cookies:

Storage:
  1. Airtight Container:Place peanut cookies in an airtight container to protect them from air and humidity. This helps prevent the cookies from becoming stale and maintains their crispness.
  2. Parchment Paper Layers:If stacking cookies in the container, place parchment paper between layers to prevent them from sticking together. This is especially important if the cookies have any toppings or decorations.
  3. Room Temperature or Refrigeration:Peanut cookies can be stored at room temperature in a cool, dry place for short-term consumption. If you plan to keep them for an extended period, consider refrigerating them. Keep in mind that refrigeration may slightly alter their texture.
  4. Avoid Moisture:Keep the cookies away from moisture, as exposure to humidity can make them lose their crispiness. Store them in a dry environment to maintain their texture.
  5. Dark and Cool Location:Store the airtight container in a dark and cool location to preserve the quality of the cookies. Avoid placing them near heat sources or in direct sunlight.
Reheating:
  1. Oven or Toaster Oven: To reheat peanut cookies, preheat your oven or toaster oven to a low temperature, around 160°C (320°F). Place the cookies directly on the oven rack or on a baking sheet and heat for a few minutes until they are warmed through. Be cautious not to overheat and watch them closely to prevent burning.
  2. Brief Reheat for Crispiness: Reheating for a short duration (3-5 minutes) can help restore some of the cookies’ crispiness. This step is optional and depends on personal preference.
  3. Avoid Microwave: Avoid reheating peanut cookies in the microwave, as it can result in a loss of crispiness. Microwaving tends to introduce moisture, which is not ideal for maintaining the texture of these cookies.
  4. Serve with Fresh Toppings: Consider serving the reheated cookies with fresh toppings, such as a scoop of ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream, or a drizzle of chocolate sauce, to enhance the overall experience.
Quality Maintenance:
  • Handle with Care: Peanut cookies are delicate, so handle them gently during storage and reheating to prevent breakage.
  • Experiment with Timing: Depending on your preference, experiment with reheating times to find the balance that suits your desired level of crispiness.
  • Serve Freshly Topped: If reheating, consider serving the cookies with fresh toppings to add new flavors and textures.

By following these storage and reheating tips, you can enjoy peanut cookies with the same delightful taste and texture even after storing them for a period.
