Makes 20 Cookies


•  7 tbsp butter, softened

•  6 tbsp powdered sugar

•  1 egg yolk

•  ¾ cup flour

•  6 tbsp finely ground almonds

•  2 tsp U•Matcha

•  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. 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.
