Peanut Cookies for Passover

One of the most popular cookies around Passover is peanut cookies that are a best-seller during the holiday at all grocery stores. These cookies are so “Passover-y”, it’s almost impossible to find it all year round, and they pop on the shelves about a month before Passover.

This is my version to the store-bought cookies. It’s very easy to make, so peanut-y and absolutely delicious. If you don’t like peanuts you can definitely prepare the cookies with other nuts you like and get a different cookie every single time.

  • 120 grams (1/2 cup + 2 tbsp.) sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 250 grams chopped peanuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 170c degrees.
  2. In a mixer bowl, whip sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt at high speed for 4-5 minutes until you get a light, fluffy and glossy mixture.
  3. Transfer the mixture into a medium pot and simmer while whisking constantly for about 2-3 minutes on medium-low heat, or until the mixture thickens slightly (it should resemble light pudding texture).
  4. Add chopped peanuts and mix until a soft mixture is obtained.
  5. Transfer the mixture into a piping bag (no needed piping tip) and cut a relatively large hole.
  6. Cool the mixture (inside the bag) in the refrigerator until it cools slightly.
  7. Drizzle mounds of the mixture on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Cool completely and store in a sealed box.

Recipe Notes

  • Keep the peanut cookies in a jar for up to a week.
  • If desired, you can decorate the cookies with some melted dark chocolate at the top.
  • Instead of peanuts you can use any other type of nuts that you like in the same amount.
