Sweet Peanut Cream Dessert 花生糊

I believe you must have tasted this Sweet Peanut Cream Dessert Soup 花生糊 in the Chinese restaurant after your meal.  Some of you might have thought that this is a troublesome to make at home because you have to dry fry the peanuts, then have to remove the skin, thereafter blend to puree only to cook it.  All this steps have to take a little time.

But today, this Sweet Peanut Cream Dessert is made in a jiffy without much hassle and it taste so yummy and delicious.   

I urge you to give this a try too and hopefully you will agree with me this dessert is super yummy.

Sweet Peanut Cream Dessert Soup 花生糊
Serves about 6 rice bowls

6 tbsp sweet peanut butter
6 red dates
6 cups water
8 tbsp sugar
5 tbsp cornstarch paste

1.  Mix the 6 tbsp peanut butter with 1/2 cup of water in a bowl until well mixed.  Then
     add an additional 1/2 cup of water.  Mix well.  Repeat this procedure until the 2 cups
     of water have been used up.

2.  Put the other 4 cups of water and 8 tbsp sugar into a pot.  Bring it to a boil.  Then add
     the peanut butter paste; mix thoroughly until it boils again.  Thicken it with cornstarch
     paste.  Pour it to a large serving bowl.

3.  Soak the red dates in warm water for about an hour.  Remove the seeds and dice the 
     pulp finely.  Then sprinkle over the peanut cream soup and serve. 

      This dessert soup tastes much better if you want to add additional 3 tbsp fresh cream or 
      condensed milk before adding the dates; for more creamier taste.
