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!

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

CNY Snack: Green Pea Cookies

This is one of the Chinese New Year goodies I made this year. The result– you can taste the green peas flavor but a bit too sweet. Not too bad considering it’s my first attempt… will improve upon next trial.

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

Ingredients:
1 cup flour
1 cup grounded green peas
1 cup icing sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Glazing: 1 beaten egg yolk

Method:

  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 can a little 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.

Note:

  1. I find the cookies are little too sweet to my liking… will cut down icing sugar to maybe 3/4 cup next time?
  2. I gounded the green peas using food processor and there were some big chunks of green peas left. Will try to ground the peas using coffee grinder next time to see if it will be more fine texture.
  3. For glazing: next time use beaten egg yolk plus few drops of water so it won’t be too thick.
