Non Dairy ~ Crispy Green Pea Cookies

Cookies always one of our favourite snacks at home. And most commercial cookies are very buttery and contained of all kinds of additional flavours which I think it isn't very healthy when over consumed. So, it's still best to make some healthy snacks at home once in a while. I found this recipe some time ago and totally in love with it, once it mentioned no plain flour & butter is used.. My mom is not a butter person, so this is just perfect for her.

Ingredients :
1 cup    green pea flour
3/4 cup   semolina flour
5 tbsp    corn flour
3 tbsp    wheat starch (tung fun)
1 tspn    baking soda
1/2 tspn   salt
200gm    shortening
3/4 cup   sugar
2 large eggs

#for topping : 3/4 cup roasted pistachio chunks or roasted coconut shreds


Method :
(1) in a big bowl. combine salt, all flour & starch and mix well.
(2) cream shortening with sugar till fluffy, then add in eggs and beat till well combined.
(3) now, stir in the dry ingredients till everything well mixed.
(4) place batter into piping bag and pipe batter onto baking tray.
(5) top prepared batter with pistachio chunks or roasted coconut shreds.
(6) finally, bake at preheated oven 175-180'C for about 10-12mins or till brown.
(7) leave them cool before removing them.

These cookies are really really crispy and flavourful.......and less buttery as well. I have never tried anything like this before. The texture is totally different from the one made by plain flour. I think you shouldn't miss this out. Probably, this will be one wonderful & healthy gift for friends & family members during the coming festive season too. Enjoy & have fun!

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

Boycott American Women

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above)

3. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

4. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden contact

5. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

Not one single American woman has EVER condemned their fellow American women for committing these crimes against men. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Apparently, American women think it is okay to be a criminal, just as long as you are a woman. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

BRAND NEW: Buy the Boycott American Women book. After reading this book, I promise you that you will never even think about dating an American woman ever again, or else I will give you your money back. That’s right, if you are not convinced by my book, I will give you a full refund!

I love butterless cookies recipe since I'm not suppose to have dairy. When I saw your first picture, i thought that it was topped with bacon!!! Come to think of it, bacon and pea would work... maybe some maple bacon?? ;)
