This is another type of cookies I baked recently, I bought the roasted green peas the type we used to have as tidbit, grind it into coarse green peas powder... it is really hard to make them into fine powder form!
The end result is a crunchy green peas cookies my hubby loves, not sure is this because of recently consuming too much melt-in-mouth cookies? Lol! I actually love the unique fragrance and crunchy texture this green peas cookies has, beside that the saltiness is a change from the sweet cookies.
Recipe referred to Anncoo Journal and Adeline Kitchen (on Facebook) with changes.
This cookies is simple to make, my Gabriel is able to help flatten the dough and use the cookies cutter to cut out the dough.
360g green peas (snack type and grind)
200g icing sugar
540g plain flour
300g peanut oil
1 tsp salt
1 egg yolk with some water
1. Bring together all ingredients in a mixing bowl, mix it until it form a rough dough. The dough should be soft but not too sticky to hand. If the dough is too dry add more peanut oil, if it is too wet, dust with a bit of flour when you knead the dough.
2. Knead the dough a bit until it is smooth, cover and let it rest for 15 mins.
3. Flatten the dough between two sheet of plastic cling with a thickness of ~5mm.
4. Use the cookies cutter, cut the dough out. Place the cookies dough on the lined baking tray.
5. Glaze the cookies surface with egg yolk mixture.
6. Bake at preheat oven at 170C for 15 mins or until the top of cookies is lightly brown.
