I wasn’t sure if I should post these sweet pea cookies. I was somewhat disappointed that you couldn’t really taste the peas. The cookies just taste like great shortbread cookies – not a bad thing, just not what I was shooting for.
I brought the pea cookies for my aerial silks friends to try and they all went crazy for them.
“You definitely have to post these cookies!” “It’s a good thing that you can’t taste the peas!” They talked about the benefits of getting the lovely green color without using food coloring and of sneaking veggies into your cookies.
Ultimately, I decided they were right and I’m sharing the sweet pea cookie recipe below!
But, if you do want to try a dessert that actually does have a sweet pea flavor, try my sweet pea cupcakes. They have a wonderful sweet pea taste in both the cake and the frosting.
While I made the green swirls using peas, I actually adapted this recipe from a swirl cookie made green from matcha, green tea swirl cookies by Mom Foodie.
