Green Tea (Macha) Shortbread Cookies

As the school year end is coming soon, I baked some yummy green tea cookies for my kids teachers gift.

What you need:

  • 1 lb butter (leave it on room temperature for over night.
  • 1/2 cups icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Green tea power
  • 2 cups all purpose flour

How to:

  1. Preheat the even to 325F.
  2. Cream butter with an electric mixer for 3 minutes.
  3. Add icing sugar and mix another 2 minutes.
  4. Combine green tea powder and  flour in a small bowl and mix well till well combined.
  5. Add the flour mixture into the butter mixture and mix with a wooden spoon.
  6. Tune the mixture from 5 onto a clear wrap and wrap it tight and leave it in the fridge for half an hour.
  7. Take our the dough from the fridge and roll dough to 1/3 in. on a lightly icinged counter. (I like to use icing sugar to put on the counter from sticking.) and cut dough with your favorite cookie cutter.
  8. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper, transfer shapes to cookie sheets and bake for 12-15 minutes.
  9. Cool on a wire rack.
  10. These will keep up to 2-3 weeks in an airtight container.
  11. Enjoy!
