Chinese New Year Cookies: Green Pea Cookies

2011_01_20 Green Pea Cookies 026a
When comes to this season, everyone is busy baking, buying and decorating. Baking as in baking cookies, buying as in buying food for reunion dinner, and buying new clothes for the new year, decorating is to decorate your house as bright as beautiful as possible and hoping that will bring the luck and prosperous to the family.

This would be my 1st time after 8 years of not making any… wonder how would it taste like… and seriously, the excitement for making this for the family is still the same.

Making this for my younger sister… this is her all time favourite. I wonder will she like this version which added sesame oil in the dough.

Anyway, … when I bake this, the whole house is full of sesame aroma.


I adapted Lingze’s recipe on this and that could make about 100 over cookies.

Method

  1. Weigh all dry ingredients per what stated in the recipes, and mixed them all in a large bowl.
  2. Mixed the dried ingredients by using whisk that will mix the dried ingredients well.
  3. Add oil gradually to form dough.
  4. If the dough is too crumby, add more oil, but for this case, I added the sesame oil.

Get the ready made grounded green pea is definitely a better choice hor? I never made this before. But, I like it.
