Green Pea Cookies

55 comments

I'm sure all bakers are very busy preparing and baking for the upcoming Chinese New Year which falls on the 10th February this year. Please excuse me for not dropping by your blogs recently as I'm also very busy in the kitchen. Here is another cookies recipe ~ Green Pea Cookies that I adapted from Cheah of No-Frills Recipes. Cheah made these melt in the mouth cookies last year that I didn't manage to them. So this year I quickly bought a packet of green pea powder to make this crumbly soft cookie. Really love the colour of this cookie and yum ... can't stop popping this not too sweet and addictive little cookie in my mouth. Love it to bits!





Green Pea Cookies

    Ingredients:
     260g Green pea powder
     160g Icing sugar
     1/2 tsp Salt
     340g Self-raising flour
     200ml Vegetable oil (I used peanut oil)
     1 egg yolk + 1/2 tsp water for glazing

     Method:
  • Sift flour with the salt and sift in the icing sugar. Add in the pea powder and mix all the ingredients thoroughly. Add oil sparingly and slowly mix till the dough does not stick to the hands.
  • Let dough rest for 15 minutes, covered.
  • Roll dough into small balls (about 10-12g each) and arrange them on a parchment lined baking tray. Apply egg glaze.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 15 minutes.
  • Allow cookies to cool on tray for about 10 minutes before removing them onto a wire rack to cool completely before storing into an airtight container.

  7. Hi Ann! I have never tried green pea cookies before and find it refreshing. Can we use the real peas instead of the powder form?

    1. Alvin, I think a lot of work using real peas. You've to fry the peas and grind to fine.

  17. I love green tea cookies. I just made some for my CNY post as well (but very differnt in the look and ingredients from your recipe). Probably will publish later this week. I say, great minds thinks alike. :) They are really perfect for CNY. I gotta try your version later too. I love that golden brown on top of the cookie from the egg wash. So pretty.

  26. oh wow i didn't know it was so easy to make these green pea cookies as I always had the impression they were like kuih bangkit and you have to cook the flour first, etc. the method reminds me of the peanut cookie - so i'm definitely KIVing this for this weekend! where can i get green pea powder easily btw?

    1. I'm not sure where you got this green pea flour. You've to call the shop owner and check it out. I bought it from Sunlik and the green pea powder is green in colour.

  32. These look very pretty and tasty. I wonder if they are the similar to those that come in a tin which I have not eaten in a long, long time. Of course, yous look way better. I am also curious about the green pea powder. First time I am hearing about it.
