Matcha Shortbread

Makes 20 Cookies

Ingredients

  • 7 tbsp butter, softened
  • 6 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 6 tbsp finely ground almonds
  • 2 tsp U•Matcha™ Natural
  • 2 tbsp turbinado sugar

How to Make

  • Cream together the butter and powdered sugar. Mix in the egg yolk.
  • In another bowl, combine the flour, ground almonds and U•Matcha™ Natural. Add to the first bowl and stir until the mixture forms a ball.
  • Roll into a 2-inch-wide log. Wrap and place in the freezer for 40 minutes until firm.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll the log in turbinado sugar to cover all sides, pressing it down a bit. Using a sharp knife, cut the log into 1/4-inch slices and arrange on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 9 minutes, or until the cookies just begin to turn golden at the edges. Let rest for 5 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely.
