Salted Yolk Cookies~ one of the new cookies (the other one is Seaweed Cookies) I made this year for CNY. Salted yolk refers to the yolk of an salted egg. I love salted yolk. I can’t believe I waited this long to try out this recipe. The cookies are flaky and not too grainy. Even my family that ewes at salted yolk loves the cookies. One tip~ because of the richness of salted yolks, I suggest to keep the cookie size small (preferably one small bite size), and serve with a cup of tea.

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!
