Everyone has their favorite green pea cookies recipe. The ingredients are pretty much the same, except more of this item and less of the other(s). After trying out a few recipes from others, I came out with my own version– I added more ground green pea and cut down sugar. I can taste the green pea flavor more now with less sugar, and the cookies are not hard to bite too. This recipe is a keeper!
