This was one of those unplanned baking day. I was snacking the green peas with Edda which we bought two weeks ago and then "ding dong". Finished one packet of this green peas had been slow and I really wanted to get rid of it fast instead of seeing it in front of my computer all the times. And then while snacking some today, the idea of making it into cookies came into mind. I always loved green peas cookies and I know it will get eaten faster than just the green peas alone. I only left with 1 cup of green peas and thus my experiment began and luckily the cookies turned out well. While making this cookie, another idea came to mind, you will have to stay tune to see what new cookies I will invent in the future. ;)
This green peas cookie is melt-in-the-mouth soft but with the crunchy bites from the crushed green peas. This recipe yields 49 cookies for me. It is a sweet cookie, you can slightly cut down on the icing sugar if you prefer it less sweet.
- 1 cup salted green peas (the one you bought at store)
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup icing sugar
- 125ml canola oil
1. In a food processor. Process the green peas until fine.
2. In a big bowl, add all the ingredients and mix well with your hand. A dough should formed, if not add a little more oil to bind.
3. Take some of the dough, roll with your hands into a log shape, pinch about 1/2 inch off and shape into round shape. Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet about 1/2 inch apart. Finish the rest of the dough.
4. Bake in preheated 350'F oven for 15 minutes. Place on wire rack to cool completely before keeping it in an air-tight container.
