- ¾ cups of white sugar
- 1 cup of butter, softened
- 1 ¾ cup of all-purpose flour
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 ½ tbsp of Matcha tea powder
- 1 cup of granulated sugar
How to Make This Green Tea Cookie Recipe
Combine the white sugar and matcha tea powder in a bowl and whisk it. Then add the butter as well and stir.
Now place this colourful blend in your mixer until it becomes smooth and light in colour.
Gradually add the flour, the egg yolks and the vanilla extract and stir until a mass forms. Feel it in your fingers! Ask the kids to give you a hand with adding the ingredients. They will love to be a part of it! After all, how often do they see green cookie dough?
Once your dough is ready, you must shape it into a disk and put it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to set and cool down.
While you wait, take this time to create some tasty tea sandwich recipes, for example! Surprise your friends with interesting and fun treats.
Preheat your oven to 350ºF (180ºC) and line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Again, get the kids to help you roll out the dough to ½ inch thickness (that’s about the thickness of a finger) and start cutting your cookies into the shapes you want!
Place your cookies on the parchment lined pan and bake for approximately 15 minutes, until the edges are slightly golden. Then dust them with granulated sugar.
Here are some tips that may be helpful in this green tea cookie recipe:
Always have a bit of flour at hand so that you rub on your rolling pin. This will prevent the dough from sticking to it.
It’s best that you do not make shapes that are hard to pick up afterwards, with difficult edges and such. Otherwise, it’s likely that you’ll be doing a lot reconstruction work on your cookies.
As you use your shapes to cut into the dough, try to make as many cookies as you can by cutting the shapes close to one another. This way you don’t have to repeat the process of rolling out the dough many times.
Your cookies are ready to be served. But let’s not stop here! How about preparing a green tea ice cream recipe? This also uses Matcha tea as well and we’re sure the kids will love it. Have a look at this refreshing recipe and have it ready to serve anytime!
