Crunchy Green Peas Cookies 香脆青豆饼



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.

今年第一次尝试弄了青豆饼,我家阿老很喜欢,那香脆的咬感真的很棒。。。我想是不是因为近来吃多了入口即化的酥饼想吃点不同的?

这里没卖青豆粉,我买了烘过的咸青豆自己碾成粹粒,真的没法弄成粉。咸青豆本来的咬感是很棒的,弄成青豆饼口感真的很香脆!是会吃不停手的哟!

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.
