Peanut Puffs


Peanut Puffs – sweet ground peanut wrapped with crispy pastry shell. Deep-fried to golden brown, so addictive and yummy.

Pastry Dough:

  • 3 cups (300 g) cake flour, sifted
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons (50 g) unsalted butter, soften
  • 20 ml peanut oil, or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • oil for deep­ frying

Peanut Filling:

  • 1 oz. (30 g) white sesame seeds
  • 1/3 cup (40 g) roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) sugar


  1. Mix all the ingredients of Pastry Dough well to form a smooth, soft dough.
  2. Heat up a pan, toast the sesame seeds on a medium­ to low heat until they are slightly golden brown. Set aside.
  3. In a blender, lightly ground the roasted peanuts into a course texture. Transfer the peanuts into a bowl, add the sesame seeds and sugar. Stir to mix well.
  4. Using a rolling pin, roll the Pastry Dough into a thin sheet. Use a 1-3/4­ inch cookie cutter to cut the pastry into rounds. Take 1/2 teaspoon of the Peanut Filling and place it onto the center of a pastry round. Fold in half, pinch and press to seal tight. You may fold the edges to form into a puff shape as pictured above.
  5. Heat up a pot with the oil and deep fry the peanut puffs in batches, until they turn golden brown. Remove with with a strainer or slotted spoon and drained on a plate lined with paper towels. Let cool before storing in an air-tight container.
