Homemade Cantonese Lunar New Year cookies

Kok zhai is a traditional Cantonese Chinese new year cookie made with dough and peanut fillings. My family will gather each year before the Lunar new year to make the cookies for the whole clan. My dad will be responsible for making and cutting the dough into little round flat circle pieces, my aunt will fry the cookies, and the rest of the family volunteers will pitch in to make the cookies by filling and pleating the cookies by hand to give it the "curry puff" look. :)
