Kueh Makmur

Last year, I tried my hands at making this Kueh Makmur. Didn't think of doing it this year actually. However, when I asked my family members what they would like for CNY goodies, my elder sister said that "thing with peanuts". I knew what she was referring to. So I went to buy some ground peanuts from PH, didn't want to roast and do everything myself. I remembered last year they commented that it wasn't very nice, though my colleagues did say it was okay. Actually, this year, I did this cookies in a haste too!

I was contemplating between Yochana's and Honey Bee Sweets recipes. As I was in a lazy mood, I didn't want to fry the flour, so I chose Yochana's instead. The dough was pretty messy, the peanut fillings was also very messy. And it made my mood "messy" too! And at the end, I just want to quickly finished up this cookies. The cookies at the end was rather big as the dough gets very soft and sticky. I even skipped crimpling the patterns! :( Don't why my mood wasn't right for baking this cookies yesterday.

Anyway, I'm glad the cookies turned out alright. My sister liked the cookies. Another sister bought this cookies from a bakery and they tried both mine and the store-bought. They concluded that mine tasted better as the crust was softer and the fillings more fragrant! *Whew!* Maybe I was more fortunate that they had a comparision so that mine taste better? *wicked grin*

I love this peanut pastry, but i dont think i have the time to bake it this CNY. You seem to be baking so many CNY goodies already, but I just managed to cook my pineapple paste yesterday. Think the lazy bones are setting in....
Cheers,
