On these rainy days before Hari Raya Haji, I was longing for a soft crunchy old fashioned peanut butter biscuits so I gave a try on this old recipe I kept from college time. I was still studying in Kuantan and was spending Hari Raya Haji with my relatives in Felda Jengka that year that I don't balik kampung since my aruah mak went for her hajj . They had a tasty peanut butter biscuit and being me the-tak-malu-anakdara ( that time la, now mak dara already! ) I had asked for the recipe she had in ounces and pounds. Thank-you CikYan ( she don't blogs, though). CikYan is going wukuf at Padang Arafah at this moment, semuga CikYan and cikAwang mendapat haji yang mabrur...Ameen.
This is CikYan's recipe I had converted to metrics.
150 g margarune
500 g peanut butter
300 g light brown sugar
100 g castor sugar
4 egg yolks
1 tsp vanila essence
1 tsp emplex ( I had added in crumb softener because from my first bakes was a bit hard)
1 tsp bicarbonate soda
1 tsp salt
450 g flour
Raisins Cream margarine and sugar then mix in peanut butter, later in add in egg yolk and vanilla essence then hand whisked until well combined.
Seive all the remaining dry ingredients then add to the cream butter mixture. Work with fingers to form a soft crumb.
Put one raisin into mold, fill up with crumb and put into oven for until its done!..
