Matcha Green Tea Shortbread Cookies

Done with my last exam for the semester. Only 999999 more exams in my life to go (yipee). I'm going to go run, relax and de-stress. Have my mum cook for me, go snowboarding, and then hibernate for 2 weeks. Yes!! I hope everyone has a wonderfully lazy Christmas too!

Here are some cookies I made to give to my bf's parents for xmas. Gawd, I am such a parent pleaser :)
These are mildly sweet cookies, with a buttery green tea aroma. Perfect for fancy gift giving.

Matcha Green Tea Shortbread Cookies

makes 2 dozen cookies

1 cup + 2 tbsp flour
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, cup into pieces
1.5 tbsp matcha powder (good quality makes greener cookies)
1/4 cup white sugar
3 tbsp raw sugar

  • Beat butter ~3 min on medium high speed (used my mixer) until creamy. Add matcha and sugar gradually on high until fluffy
  • Stir in flour and salt on low or by hand. Don't overmix! Just until blended
  • Gather into a ball with your hand. The dough may seem dry but if you work at it and knead it a few times it will come together
  • Roll out onto lightly floured parchment to 1/4" and cut out desired shape. Sprinkle sugar over the tops and press in lightly
  • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour - overnight
  • Preheat oven to 325F and bake 17-22 mins. Watch carefully because you don't want them turning brown!
*If cutting out is too much work, you can also roll the dough into a cylinder, roll it in some raw sugar to coat it. Seran wrap and refrigerate. When you're ready to bake, slice it into 1/4" rounds and bake!
