Rich, buttery shortbread with the subtle flavor of green tea. Pairs wonderfully with tea or with ice cream for a dessert! Cookies taste better the next day.

  • Beat butter in a bowl using an electric mixer until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add 3/4 cup sugar and continue beating until mixture is lighter in color, about 2 minutes more.

  • Mix flour, green tea powder, and salt together in a separate bowl; gradually add to creamed butter mixture, beating on low speed until dough sticks together. Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness on the floured parchment paper; cut into 2-inch cookies or bars. Roll remaining dough and cut into more cookies until all the dough is used. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.

  • Carefully transfer cookies to the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle sugar over each cookie.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until firm and barely starting to turn golden, about 15 minutes. Cool completely.

I had a hard time getting the dough to stick together. It seemed rather dry and crumbly and I had to press it together to get the dough to stick to itself. I couldn't roll it out or roll it into balls so I shaped small walnut-sized balls as best I could rolled in sugar then flattened on the baking sheet. Other than that tastes like I expected it would: buttery with the flavor of green tea. Read More

This is so good. I will surely make it again. I have added my leftover white chocolate chips and slivered almonds coz we love nuts and the kids love chocolate however I reduced the sugar since the chocolate is sweet enough. The kids loved it. So simple to make for a novice baker like me. Thanks for sharing this recipes. Read More

Was very easy to make. Buttery and not overwhelmingly sweet. I had to add /14 teaspoon of green tea. I used high grade culinary matcha green tea. The color and the taste was perfect. Read More

These were much tastier than I expected and very easy to make. I was surprised how soft the dough ended up being. It had the same consistency of kinetic sand. That made rolling it a small challenge but not impossible. The first tray I made I forgot to add the sprinkle of sugar on top but now having tasted it both with and without the extra sugar it isn t much different. I m glad I found this recipe. It s a perfect treat for Spring with its bright green color and light refreshing taste. Read More
