Red Bean Cookies?

Don’t ask me why, but for some reason I thought red bean cookies would have been a good idea. Unfortunately, my concept of the cookie was better than the actual cookie itself - the red bean flavours was too mild to be tasted. They turned out simply as tasty cookies, but not tasty red bean cookies. Boo.

Red Bean Cookies
Makes 48

3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
250g unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup red bean paste
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar2 large eggs


Preheat oven to 200°C and line 2 large baking sheets with baking paper.

Beat butter, red bean paste and vanilla in large bowl until well blended and then beat in sugar. Stir half of dry ingredients into mixture. Add eggs 1 at a time, stirring well after each addition. Mix in remaining dry ingredients.

Using a tablespoon, scoop out a heaped tablespoon of cookie dough and roll into a ball and arrange the dough balls about on a tray 5 cm apart. Using back of fork, flatten dough balls.

Bake cookies until dry on top and golden brown on bottom, about 14 minutes.

Cool cookies on baking sheets 5 minutes. Transfer onto cooling rack and cool completely.

heh. maybe, but i think the only way to make the red bean tasty is to make it really really sweet, and then it wouldn't really be red bean. Hmm..

Maybe you would want to try not turning the beans into paste. I think you might just taste the beans if they are whole. Just like those green bean cakes the nonyas or the malays do. :D
