Archive for the ‘Green Pea Cookies II 青豆餅之二’ Category

This is the 2nd time I made green pea cookies with some changes to the original recipe. I used a coffee grinder to ground the peas and it did a much better job than a food processor.  Also, I added more oil this time because for some reason the dough was still quite dry after pouring in 1/3 cup of oil. Maybe the absorption of the flour is different this time. I find the cookies this time are still a bit sweet, will try to reduce icing sugar further to 1/2 cup and use some corn flour next time.

Green Pea Cookies Recipe (adapted from “New Year Cookies” by Alan Ooi):

1 cup flour
1 cup grounded green peas
1 cup icing sugar –> used 3/4 cup
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil –> used about 1/2 cup

Glazing: 1 beaten egg yolk


  1. Preheat oven to 325° F.
  2. Combine all ingredients (except egg yolk). Mix well to form a dough– if the dough is too dry add more oil.
  3. Roll the dough into small balls (1 inch diameter). Place balls onto baking sheet and use finger to gently press down to form a disc. Alternatively you can also roll out the dough between 2 sheets and use cookie cutter to cut out the shape.
  4. Glaze the top with beaten egg yolk. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Cool on the rack. Store in air tight container.
