Lesson learnt: Never ever follow the steps taken right out of a microwave manual. It’s horrible and distasteful.
That was what I did the 2nd time round, and believe me, the cookies tasted more like raw butter than anything else because the recipe used only melted butter and no oil. The nutty taste disappeared into thin air during the baking process.
This batch, using icing sugar, was great. They taste just like those peanut cookies sold in a lot of bakery shops – those that melt in the mouth. Thanks to the moulds given to me by my mum-in-law, the shape looked good too.
