Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Step 2
Grind the Dry Roasted, Unsalted Peanuts (1 1/2 cups) into a fine powder using a food processor.
Step 3
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground peanuts, All-Purpose Flour (1 1/2 cups) , Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1/2 cup) , Granulated Sugar (1/2 cup) and Salt (1 pinch) . Mix well.
Step 4
Pour Peanut Oil (3/4 cup) over the peanut mixture and knead with your fingers until a dough forms.
Step 5
Take about 1 teaspoon of the dough and form it into a ball by squeezing the dough in your hand first, then gently rolling it in between your palms. If the dough crumbles too easily, add more oil to the dough.
Step 6
Arrange the cookie dough balls about an inch apart on a cookie sheet.
Step 7
Lightly beat the Egg (1) and brush it on the top of each cookie.
Step 8
Bake for about 20 minute or until they turn a nice golden brown.
