Sweet and Salty Peanut Biscuits

June 7, 2008

Decided to spend my Saturday at home, as it has been a week since i last spend time in the kitchen! *sigh* GOSH! i’m desperate to hang out in the kitchen! Draw out Nigella Lawson’s How to be a domestic goddess, flipped and landed on this recipe. O.O sweet and salty…. erm…. i seriously wonder how it tasted like! Best of all, i do have a packet of salted peanuts to play with *wink* so here it is! the 1st recipe of the week! 😀

Ingredients: (Makes about 30)

75g Light Muscovado Sugar, plus more for dipping
100g Unsalted Butter
50g Vegetable Shortening
1 Large Egg
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
175g Self-Raising Flour
125g Salted Peanuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degree C.
  2. Mix together sugar, butter, shortening, egg and vanilla. Just beat it together, to combine.
  3. Stir in Flour and then the peanuts.
  4. Drop the dough in rounded teaspoons on baking sheets.
  5. Oil the bottom of a glass , dip it on some light muscovado sugar and press gently on the biscuits to flatten them.
  6. Bake for 8-10mins, Remove from oven and cool on wire rack before storing in air tight container.

Well, i was pretty much greedy! =X instead of teaspoon amount of the dough, i dropped tablespoon amount, resulting in huge cookies! *cover mouth* Taste wise, they tasted pretty much salty than sweet and salty. i personally felt was that these didn’t really work for me. =/
