I love the taste of Matcha Tea and have been trying out different bands and different recipes. Here is a tasty cookie recipe I have found that I like to share today.
You will need:
2 TBSP Matcha Tea Powder
2 TBSP agave (or 1/3 cup (75g) Sugar )
1 stick Butter (125 g)
1 1/2 Cup (200g) Almond Flour (or 200 g Flour)
1/3 cup (50g) Almonds grounded up
1. In a small bowl combine the Matcha Tea powder with Sugar.
2. Cut the butter into big chunks
3. Mix in the flour, almonds and add them to the Matcha Tea/Sugar mix
4. Add an egg to the mix and using your hands knead until a soft dough is created.
5. Put the dough in some cellophane wrap and place in the fridge for 1 hour.
6. Sprinkle some flour on a flat surface and roll out the dough. Use any cookie cutter and cut out the cookie shapes.
7. Place these on a flat silicon baking sheet (or line sheet with something so cookies won't stick)
8. Bake for 10min at 170 degrees.ZENDORI Matcha Green Tea Powder - Super High-End Japanese DRINKING / CEREMONIAL Grade - Creamy and Naturally Sweet - Energy Drink - Luxury Tea Gifts - 1oz/30g $26.99 $31.99 Zendori
