I guess these green pea cookies need no introduction , it's quite common to find a jar of these cookies in most homes during Chinese New Year. I dont really have a good recipe for this, last year i made some, it didnt turn out really well. This time i searched the internet again and decided to try the recipe from esjoei's blog, well this time it turned to be better but i think i could have underbaked them, it's kind of soft, i actually prefer them to be a little more crunchier, should i have added in a little more flour.. and also the green pea powder which i used didnt seem to possess that fragrant taste of green peas..sigh..Nevertheless, to jesskitchen, in case you're reading this, i'll still be submitting this to the Aspiring Bakers#3-My Favourite CNY cookie ( Jan 2011).
