Selam everybody....Merhaba from Turkey.
This Peanut cookie is one from many other İndonesian old traditional cookies. İ grew up with these cookies. İ remember had this cookies every Eid Fitr holiday when my late grandmother or my family took me and siblings visited some relatives and family's friend.
At that time (around 1980's) we still could find this peanut cookies easily, at least every Eid Fitr or Christmas holiday. Until İ think around middle 1990's it became less popular among other classic cookies (kaastengels, nastar, butter cookies, etc).
Even it became less popular compare to other classic and modern cookies, still some small stall sold this peanut cookies until İ didn't remember exactly when it became less and less to find especially in big cities.
İ left my homeland Surabaya around year 2000 and started my new academic career at Jakarta and since then İ never ate or saw that cookies anymore until now year 2017 😢
But İ still remember exactly how it taste and İ miss it now.
