Roasted Edamame Cookies



This is the cookie I invented while making my green pea cookies. While making that cookies, I remembered I still have half a bottle of dry roasted Edamane in my pantry. This is definitely a great way to finish my roasted Edamane as this cookie is delicious, way better than munching the roasted Edamane alone. This is an Asian Chinese style cookie. The cookie is very delicate and when you bite into it, it is crunchy with bits of Edamane and yet it has the melt-in-the-mouth feel. Sooooo good! Now, I am going to use my unfinished roasted Edamane to make this delicious cookies, it will make such a great gift for my healthy friend too. If you love dry roasted Edamane, you will love this cookie, go ahead give it a try! :) My girls and I totally loved this cookies.





Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups lightly salted dry roasted Edamame
(A)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup icing sugar
(B)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 130ml canola oil



Method:

1. In a food processor, process the dry roasted Edamame until fine.
Pour into a big glass bowl.

2. In the big glass bowl, add (A) and stir with a spatula until combined. Then, add (B) and mix with your hand until a dough is formed or stick together when squeeze with your palm. Use a small cookie scoop and scoop even sizes of cookie dough on parchment paper lined baking sheet about 1/2 inch apart. After that, flatten the cookies with a fork in a circular motion like picture above.


3. Bake in preheated 350'F oven for 12-13 minutes. Cool on wire rack completely before storing them in an air-tight container.


~Yield about 31 cookies with the small cookie scoop.
This recipe can easily be double to make more cookies.

That's a really interesting and simple recipe! I love edamame in pretty much any form, so I might have to try this sometime.

The cookies look so light and crispy. I never bake with edamame. What a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

Hehe Pearl, that's what I like too. :)

You're welcome MyFoodRocks.

Thanks nora.

Yes pigpigs, instead of the green pea flavor, you get Edamame. My hubby doesn't like edamame so he didn't like this cookie.

Thanks Les. I'm going to make more today.

Hope you can find it at your local Costco Sue. I saw it the last time I went, should have no problem finding it.

No lah Sig. I still not sure about the lighting, etc.

Then, you should like this Anna. I really loved this cookies, going to make another batch today. :)

You're welcome Gert.

Noobcook, I think after snacking half a bottle of dry roasted edamame, I got sick of it so had to think of another way to enjoy this beans. :P

Baking Fiend, it tasted like the dry roasted edamame. The texture is the same as the Chinese peanut cookies (the one we bake for CNY), that peanuts cookies tasted like peanuts and with the fragrant of peanuts whereas this tasted and smelled like dry roasted edamame. :)

Thanks daphne.

Thanks Jo. I heard a lot of benefits associated with this Edamame beans too.

BBOven, it's crunchy yet melt in the mouth. :P
