KUE KERING KACANG / INDONESIAN PEANUT COOKIES

Resep dalam bhs İndonesia klik disini






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 these 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 cookie easily, at least every Eid Fitr or Christmas holiday. Until İ think around the 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 cookie until İ didn't remember exactly when it became less and less to find especially in big cities.

İ left my homeland Surabaya around the 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 tastes and İ miss it now.


Such a happy moment when İ found this recipe and try it in my kitchen. İ found the recipe from one İndonesian food blogger, diahdidi.com. And now become my precious one.

This peanut cookie has crumble texture and melt in your mouth-typical indeed for this cookie. So you need to make sure the cookie really cool to room temperature before moving into a cookie jar.
Almond slice topping is optional, as İ remember old fashioned peanut cookies didn't use any topping. 


Keep this recipe for your cookies collection, it's priceless and worth to try.

KUE KERİNG KACANG / INDONESİAN PEANUT COOKİES
Adapted from Diah Didi's with minor adjustment

Make about 900 gr 
İngredients:
  • 400 gr AP flour
  • 250 gr pre-toasted peanut - skin removed
  • 150 gr icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp powdered milk (optional--my addition, original recipe didn't use)
  • 1 tsp fine salt
  • ¼ tsp powdered vanilla ( I use vanilla paste)
  • 200 gr cooking oil ( I use peanut oil ± 230 gr, more than the original recipe )
For topping:
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 Tbsp margarine ( İ use 2 tbsp oil)
  • almond slice / roasted peanut (optional)
Method :

1) Preheat oven at 160°C and roast peanut for about 15 minutes. This step is optional because the original recipe didn't mention to reroasted the peanut but I like to bring my peanut back "alive" again and aromatic.

2) Pour roasted peanut with half part of icing sugar into a food processor and pulse until powdery smooth (as figure A below)



3) Move smooth peanut into big bowl and add other ingredients except oil. Then gradually pour in peanut oil bit by bit. Mix and try to knead while adding the oil until you get oily and shape-able dough. The amount of oil can be varied depend on your dough condition, you may need less or more than recipe above. İmportant thing is your dough should be not dry and shape-able (See illustration B above). Cover with plastic wrap and keep in refrigerator ±1 hour.

4) Pre heat oven at 140°C (fan) or 160°C --original recipe calls for 170°C--depend on your own oven. Use rolling pin to flat the cookie dough. Put the dough between plastic film or parchment paper when you work. Roll approximately 1,5- 2 cm thick.
Cut the dough use heart shape cookie cutter, of course you can use other shape but traditionally heart or flower shape is common for this peanut cookies.

5) Mix egg yolks with oil. Arrange cookies on baking tray lined with baking paper and brush with yolks mixture then sprinkle with almond slice-gently push the almond so it will stick onto cookies. Bake for about 30 to 40 minute until golden color and crunchy. 
Note: recognize your own oven condition, different oven may give different result.
Let the cookies cool to room temperature before store into air tight jar. Cookie has lightly crumble so gently to move into jar.

Happy baking ♡
