Last weekend was a long weekend in Singapore. And the weather has been very unfriendly to us lately. The sun and humidity can almost kill you if you spend more than 30 mins outside. So we decided to spend more time inside the house instead of going out, which brought me to start browsing the recipe books again. Then I stumbled into this super easy cookie recipe: Matcha cookies. Since we have no cookie stock at home, so i said to my self : why not?
Matcha Cookies (makes about 50 cookies)
Things you need:
- 240 gr Plain Flour
- 15 gr Matcha Powder
- 150 gr Unsalted Butter – room temperature
- 130 gr Icing Sugar
- pinch of salt
- 2 egg yolks
- Granulated sugar
- 1 egg white
- Black sesame seed
Things you need to do:
Sift flour and green tea powder. Set aside.
Beat butter, icing sugar and salt until creamy. Add in the egg yolk and mix well. Add flour and matcha powder, fold in with rubber spatula. Cover the dough with cling wrap and put it in fridge for about 15 mins.
Divide the chilled dough into 2 portion. Using parchment paper shape each portion into a log about 3.5 cm diameter. Wrap the log with parchment paper and keep it in fridge until firm ( you can keep the dough in fridge for 2 months).
Preheat the oven to 150 C. Cut logs into 1 cm thick round. Dip edges in granulated sugar.
Place cookies in baking tray lined with parchment paper. Brush egg white over the cookie and sprinkle the black sesame seed on top of the cookies.
Bake for 25 mins or until the cookie is cooked. Remove the cookie and leave to cool.
Serve the cookie with a glass of matcha late and have a great afternoon tea break!
