Cook: Melt In The Mouth Green Pea Cookies

CNY is around the corner so make more cookies to share with family and friends. This is another successful melt in the mouth cookies. Got distracted by my son while making so forget to glaze the cookies before popping them into oven. Not so pretty looking but definitely yummy! This is a twist from my peanut cookies recipe :)

5. 1 egg yolk ( to glaze, optional)
