Finally back writing. After a month’s break, I finally got time to do some baking. Matcha Cookies this time.
Match Sable Cookies
240 g cake flour
15 g matcha powder
150 g butter
90 g icing sugar
2 egg yolks
-instead of rolling into a tube of cookies, I read a tip from Sadaharu Aoki. Use a 2 1/2 inch round cutter and cut out the cookies. The cookies will be more uniform in size and shape.
The matcha cookies turned out to a beautiful green after baking. I chose to use the biscuit way in which the butter and flour were mixed into a sand like texture and then added the rest of the ingredients. As a tip for matcha, one should use the matcha soon after opening as it tends to oxidize and as a result the colour will not be as vivid. These cookies will make a lovely snack for a friends birthday.
