One of the popular Malaysian Chinese New Year snacks is the melt in your mouth peanut cookies. The green pea variation is a more recent creation but retains that melt in your mouth texture and lightness due to its use of oil instead of butter and a lovely roasted ground green pea flavour that is perfect as a slightly sweet and salty snack.

Recipe Notes
  • Peanut oil can be substituted with groundnut oil
  • Substitute 390g Khao Shong Roasted Green Peas for the ground green pea if you can't find any in stores and leave out the salt as the Khao Shong peas are already salted.
