Golden Puff Pastry with Peanut ♡花生油角♡

I bought one of the cookbook recipe, and for this month, they have some Chinese New Year Goodies, and this Golden Puff Pastry with Peanut is one of them.
I took half of the recipe to try out. It was rather simplified in fact.
Mixing all the ingredients and kneading it into a dough, and resting it for 10 mins before we roll it out.
I remembered when I was rather young, my Aunty used to make these Peanut Puff Pastry and it was delicious. And we were having fun making these puffs. Initially when I tried to make the folds, I couldn't get the rhythm, seems pretty clumsy with it.. but subsequently with the following puffs, I managed to get the folds done up nicely.
Hehehehe.... I like mine stuffed with lots of peanuts. I know those selling outside are filled with miserable amount of peanuts, so since these are homemade... so why not...??? :-D
I had used those ready-made peanut powder from the supermarket for my convenience.
Hubby & Nat loved these Puff Pastry very much... Nat had 4 at one go...
Here is the recipe for some of you whom might be keen and is a "Kok Zai" fan:-D
(using half of the ingredients, and a 5-cm round mould, yeilds about 25-30 puffs)
