If it's not CNY or CNY over you still can make this puff yourself at home if you're keen on trying or experiment.It really not really hard,I think..Actually I think it's worth your time trying if loves this gems!! it's taste absolute great!
For the Dough:
250 gm all purpose flour,sifted,plus extra for dusting
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick or 8 tbsp or 110gm unsalted cold butter
4 tbsp cold water
1 cup roasted coarsely crushed peanut
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2-3 cups canola oil for frying
1:Rub butter into flour and salt until it's resembles into bread crumbs texture.Add in water and mix to form a pliable dough.Cover and leaves to rest for 30 minutes.
2:Dust the counter with some flour before roll out pastry with rolling pin into 2 mm thick and use small round cookies cutter about 3-4 inch to cut the round shape out..
3:Combined crushed peanut with sugar,mix well.Scoop 1 tsp into the center of round shape pastry,fold the edges together before pinch or crimps the edges to make decorative edges..If you have the mini mould and feel it's easier then manual crimping then use it..it's save time from crimping...Place mini peanut puff on a floured tray..Repeat until all done.
4:Heat fryer or medium size aluminium stock pot with oil at medium heat. When oil at 350 F or 170 C,place mini peanut puffs into the hot oil.If the fryer or oil is too hot,reduce the heat to low flame.Do not over crowded the fryer.Fry the mini puffs until golden brown.
5:Remove puffs onto a paper liner tray to absorb the excess oil.Let's it cool completely before stock in container.
ready to fry
