When making these cookies, I told myself probably I won’t share this post because it is too tedious with the rolling of the dough. The dough is crumbly and very time consuming. Later, I changed my mind when I ate it after several days and also my friend’s tip. The cookies tasted good, has a nice aroma of the green peas, quite addictive if you know how to enjoy it. Don’t pop it into your mouth in one go, may choke, give it a bite or two. You will enjoy it.
My friend gave me the idea to roll the dough in between plastic sheets, use a 2 cm wide cookie cutter to cut, then a funnel stem to create the small circle in the centre. I saw and tried hers, it is nice.
|Store bought Ground Green Peas Powder|
[makes 120 pieces]
420 gm green pea powder
300 gm plain flour
130 gm icing sugar
1/4 tsp salt
210 gm vegetable oil [or more if you find the dough too crumbly]
Egg Glaze [mix and sieve]
1 egg yolk + 1 tbsp water
- Sift plain flour, icing sugar and salt in a large bowl.
- Sift  again when adding to green pea powder. Mix well.
- Gradually add in vegetable oil, mix until well combined.
- Take out 1/2 tablespoon dough press until firm, then shape gently into a ball. Arrange dough balls slightly apart on a lined baking tray.
- Lightly press the dough ball with a funnel stem to create the small circles.
- Brush top lightly with egg glaze once [over brushing will result in top looking too dark].
- Bake in preheated oven at 170 degrees C for 20 minutes.
- Remove from oven, set aside to cool completely before storing in air-tight containers. Cookies taste better after several days.
