Cooking Pleasure: CNY 2020 – GREEN PEAS COOKIES

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

  1. Sift plain flour, icing sugar and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Sift [1] again when adding to green pea powder.  Mix well.
  3. Gradually add in vegetable oil, mix until well combined.
  4. 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. 
  5. Lightly press the dough ball with a funnel stem to create the small circles.
  6. Brush top lightly with egg glaze once [over brushing will result in top looking too dark].
  7. Bake in preheated oven at 170 degrees C for 20 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven, set aside to cool completely before storing in air-tight containers.  Cookies taste better after several days.

Took the picture during CNY at my mother in-law’s house in a hurry,
