I was craving for something savoury but all I’ve got in the pantry were sweet, chocolatey stuff. Don’t get me wrong, I love my sweet, chocolatey snacks but today in particular I wanted to nibble on something crunchy, fragrant and a little salty.
So I threw together some ingredients and made…salted roasted peanuts & onion cookies. Okay, I seriously have to work on naming my recipes better….can’t get more literal than that :P
# – Salted roasted peanuts and onion cookies.
Anyway, these cookies are so delicious! I can’t believe I managed to pull it off! With a gorgeous fragrance from the onions and sesame oil, they are crunchy and addictive!
Without further ado, lets check out how these simple but delicious cookies are made.
For the cookies:
- 2 red onions, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
- 160 grams of flour, sifted
- 2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda, sifted
- 100 grams of butter, roughly chopped
- 60 grams of salted roasted peanuts
- 3 tablespoon of sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon of coarse sugar
- 1 tablespoon of coarse salt or sea salt
# – First of all, dump all the finely chopped onion in a pan on medium heat. No need to grease the pan.
# – Then, throw in 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and stir.
# – On medium heat, cook till the onions are caramelised and wilted. Set aside to cool.
# – Now pound the salted roasted peanuts till they’ve broken into tinier pieces. I would have used a food processor if I’ve got one ;)
# – Kind of like this. Set aside.
# – Now, sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda into a mixing bowl and throw in the butter.
# – Rub the flour and butter together till resemble bread crumbs.
# – Dump the peanuts into the flour & butter mixture.
# – Followed by the caramelised onions prepared earlier.
# – Pour 3 tablespoons of sesame oil into the mixture.
# – With your hands, just mix and knead everything together till combined into a dough, like this.
# – Form 24 flattened balls and place them on a greased baking tray. I used a silicon mat so it’s much more convenient ;)
# – Now this is optional, but it would definitely give your cookies a kick of flavours. Just mix a tablespoon of coarse sugar and coarse salt together.
# – Then sprinkle the salt and sugar mixture over the top of the cookies.
# – Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees celcius for 18 minutes.
# – Salted roasted peanuts and onion cookies, DONE!
# – I think they would be great with a bowl of piping hot creamy soup too but they are pretty perfect eaten on its own ;)
As I’m blogging this, 6 of the cookies have already vanished. Hopefully the BF will arrive home from work before they dissappear completely!
