Matcha Shortbread Cookies

Not only does the green of the matcha pop in these cookies, but these cookies are also the ideal texture. Matcha isn't always the easiest thing to find but I typically go to my local Japanese grocery store to get this green powder.

  1. Preheat the oven to 360 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the butter and sugar with a spatula. add egg yolk and mix. Add in salt and seeds scraped from vanilla bean.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, almond meal (ground almonds), chopped almonds and matcha. Stir together until all lumps are removed.
  4. Combine the two bowls and stir until the mixture comes together to form a ball. Take it out a baking sheet, line it with parchment paper. On a plate, sprinkle sugar and put the dough on it and roll it into a log that should be around 1.5 inches in width. wrap tightly in plastic wrap or parchment paper. Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours.
  5. Take the log out and bake for 12 minutes, or until the cookies start turning golden at the edges. Have it cool for 5 minutes.
