Make these fragrant and crunchy Nestum Peanut Cookies this Chinese New Year! Made with Nestum, these Nestum Peanut Cookies come with an extra crunch.

Quick introduction for those who do not know what’s Nestum, it’s a cereal under the Nestle brand. It has been made and added into various baking recipes such as pineapple tarts for an extra crunch.

My inspiration to incorporate Nestum into these Peanut Cookies is to provide a crunchy element to these cookies. As some of you may be familiar, the traditional peanut cookies has a melt-in-your-mouth texture. However, I wanted to mix it up a little and I am glad that my experiment is successful! Not only are these Nestum Peanut Cookies nicely crunchy, they also retain the same aroma and flavours of the original peanut cookies!

Additionally, these cookies are so easy to make within 5 simple steps and you will just need one bowl. No complicated techniques or machines are needed, apart from an oven.

Nonetheless, do refer to the video guide for a quick glimpse on how the batter and process is like at each step.
