Matcha Cookies

Submitted by:

Simple, delicious cookies, great with a cup of green or oolong tea!

Prep Time: 45 min.
Serving Size: makes 40 cookies
  • 1 1/3 c. powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp. matcha (Japanese green tea) powder
  • 10 tbsp. butter, cut in cubes
  • 1 2/3 c. flour
  • 3 large egg yolks
Sift the sugar and matcha in a bowl. If you have a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, then mix the butter and the matcha sugar mixture until crumbly. Add the flour and mix fast, then add the egg yolks one at a time.
If you do not have a stand mixer, combine the sugar/matcha mixture, butter, and flour in a bowl and knead until well mixed. Add the egg yolks and mix with a wooden spoon.
Chill cookie dough for 15 min.
On a floured surface, roll the pastry to 3/16" thickness with a rolling pin. Use a cookie cutter to cut out various shapes.
Place the cookies onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake at 330°F until slightly golden around the edges. Transfer with the parchment paper onto a metal rack to cool. The cookies will harden and crisp up as they cool.
