Peanut Cookies | Hua Sheng Bing from China

These Peanut Cookies are from China and are called as Hua Sheng Bing. I know these would have made a great choice for H, however, I was happy I made those hot cross buns. For P I had the Pulla sweet bread bookmarked. However, as I had said, this week is sort of hectic and I didn’t have time to bake bread. So it was cookies.

I decided on this when I read about Pavani’s Hua Sheng Bing and I searched net again. I landed here from where Pavani also baked. These cookies are supposed to be baked for Chinese New Year. And the post has a lovely intro to these cookies.

Peanuts are staple ingredient at home and baking a cookie with it felt surreal. While I was making the dough, I felt I was preparing the mix for Peanut laddo that we often make.

These were really so delicious that I won’t mind making these again. I had to scale down so much that I used only 1/4 cup and got just 12 cookies, which was fantastic!

  1. You are so right! These do remind me of the peanut laddoos too, which are my favorite. I’ve seen cookies made with peanut butter but with peanut powder this is the first I’ve seen. Can’t wait to make these.
