Peanut Puffs


Peanut Puffs are a crunchy pastry shell encasing a sweet ground peanut. Deep-fried until golden brown, these are highly addicting and delectable.

I’ve been busy baking all the Chinese New Year cookies, munchies, and snacks for the party during the last week. These crispy, irresistible, and delectable peanut puffs are a classic Chinese New Year snack.

They are a delicacy since they are packed with sweet ground peanuts, wrapped in pastry dough, and deep-fried to golden perfection. Once you’ve acquired one, you cannot quit.
