Cookies : Coconut Nutty Cheese Cookies 椰子花生芝士球

Cookies : Coconut Nutty Cheese Cookies 椰子花生芝士球



Recipe source :  Y3K Magazine, issue 40, 1/2 - 2008

I find these cookies most unusual. They are tasty, no doubt about it. But the texture is more candy-like than cookies. The outer coating of peanuts is crunchy and fragrant while the insides of the "cookies" are soft and chewy. 

You can get addicted to these sweet cookies. The crunchy peanuts blended tastefully with the soft and sweet honey, coconut and cheese. Once we started munching on these nutty cookies it was hard to stop!  

This is truly a sweet indulgence!

Ingredients A

60g butter
80g cream cheese
125g Castor sugar
170g honey
60g peanut butter
60g fresh milk



Ingredients B

170g peanuts, roasted and ground
60g dessicated coconut

Ingredients C

200g peanuts, roasted and ground


Decoration

Some coloured chocolate rice ( optional )

Materials required

Small paper cups
 

Method


1.  Put ingredients A in a heavy based pan. Heat contents. Stir gently at all times until syrup has thickened in consistency.
2.  Add in ingredients B and stir to mix evenly. Leave mixture to cool.
3.  When the mixture has cooled down sufficiently to handle, scoop up about 1 teaspoonful of dough and shape it into a round shape. Coat it with ingredient C and place the cookie into a small paper cup.
4.  Repeat the process with the remaining dough.
5.  Sprinkle some coloured chocolate rice onto (if using)
6.  Store in airtight jars
7.  Makes 60 cookies.
