Kueh Makmur is a traditional Malay kueh. It's a peanut filled cookie shaped like a leaf and coated with icing sugar. The dough is made of flour, butter, ghee and icing sugar. Some recipe uses butter also. But my recipe uses butter and ghee. This is a popular cookie or kueh during Hari Raya and Chinese New Year.
40gms icing sugar
150gms chopped peanuts
Sieve flour and icing sugar.
Add in butter and ghee.
Knead into a dough and roll into balls and fill with peanuts.
Shape into a leaf and and crimp patterns on the leaf.
Bake in a preheated oven(160°) for 15-20 mins or until golden brown.
Remove from oven and sieve icing sugar over the makmurs.
