It is the time of the year again, where Malaysian and Muslim all round the world will be celebrating the end of fasting month. I was told by Mr H who was in Kuala Lumpur last week, that shopping was a nightmare... it was packed and overly crowded ...everywhere he turned... so he didn't get to do what he intended to do on his short stay in Kuala Lumpur but to attend meeting... :(

To mark the auspiscious celebration... which probably be celebrated this Friday... Miss E and I were busy in the kitchen yesterday... making these traditional cookies ...

Green Peas cookies...

I was introduced to Green Peas cookies by Melissa, last Chinese New Year celebration... it tasted so good that I immediately search the net for the recipe and found this ... quickly jotted down in my little red book.

It is easy to make ... however the only complain I have is that I have to take out the outer membrane of the green peas... one by one until my index finger and thumb were sore...
  • 130g green peas (160g snack pack)
  • 150g plain flour
  • 90g icing sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 100g oil

Peel off the green peas membrane/skin and ground into a fine powder... as fine as you are able to. Sift flour and icing sugar into a mixing bowl. Add salt and mix well. Add in oil and knead into a smooth dough.
Roll the dough in between 2 plastic sheets, and cut using cookie cutter.

Bake at 150C for 15-20 minutes (baking time varies according to oven... I burnt my first batch!!). Yield about 60 pieces.


  1. I love these pea cookies...they are so special!

  2. Love pea cookies too...though I don't make them, I have tried them before. I think it was during Chinese New Year :)

  3. Angie,
