Green Peas Cookies CNY

I guess many of us Chinese will be thinking what to bake for the coming Chinese New Year celebration I found this Green Peas Cookies recipe from Lydia of My Kitchen. I used self raising flour instead of plain flour. I find that using self raising flour the cookies are more fluffy and truly melts in the mouth. I love it...thumbs up and a big Thank You to Lydia for sharing this recipe :))) Easy to make and simply yummy !

. instead of using a cookie cutter, I roll them into balls
and using the back of the ball pen cover to make a small
indent on the balls :)) and glaze with egg yolk
before baking

. Geeen Peas Cookies - CNY ( adapted from My Kitchen )
( makes 65 pieces )


130 gm green peas ( snack type - grinded ) * I bought the ready ones from Wah Seng
90 gm icing sugar
1/4 tsp salt
170 gm self raising flour
100 gm vegetable oil


1 egg yolk
1/2 tbsp milk


1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl till well mixed. Add oil and slowly mix until a dough is formed.

2. Roll dough into small balls. Place the balls 1 inch apart on parchment lined baking sheet. Using the back of a ball pen cover ( make sure you wash the cover before using ) make a small indent on the balls.

3. Glaze the top with egg yolk mixture.

4. Bake in preheated oven at 170ยบ C for about 15 mins or until the surface is browned.

5. Cool completely on a rack before storing.

Enjoy !

  1. Hi. May I ask if can use Rice Bran Oil to replace? Thank you!

    1. Hi Mommy,Ernest & Esther,

      I am not sure how the texture will turn out to be using rice bran oil. You can try a small batch first :) It might affect the texture a bit. It might turn out to be more fluffier or more compact. Best of luck !
