The dough for these addictive, delicate Chinese cookies (hua sheng bing in Mandarin) is chock-full of unsalted, roasted peanuts. They're a popular treat year-round, but also great for Chinese New Year.
Rapeseed oil can be substituted for the groundnut oil, if desired.
I couldn't believe we could reproduce the childhood treat by this recipe. The texture was powdery and rich, exactly like what I had when I was little. The smell was good too. - 06 Feb 2018
These were delicious, very delicate cookies that reminded me of peanut shortbread. Easy to make, as well, and I liked the fact that they weren't too sweet. A yummy choice for Chinese New Year, or any time of year! - 06 Feb 2018
So easy to make in a food processor! The longest part was putting the nuts on top but it does make them look nicer. Will def make again. - 06 Feb 2018
