Green Tea Christmas cookies for the Holidays
Monday, December 16, 2019

Ingredients

•2¼ cups all-purpose flour, some additional flour for dusting your workstation
•1 cup room temperature butter
•½ cup granulated white sugar
•2½ tablespoons SenCha Matcha Green Tea Powder (Order from Health and Diet Corner)
•6 tablespoons of cream
•2 tablespoons of confectioner's sugar (for dusting)

Instructions

1.Preheat your oven to 325F
2.With a hand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Once the butter lightens up in color, you know you're doing it right.
3.Sift in the flour and matcha powder into the butter and mix together.
4.The mixture should be crumbly of which you will want to add your cream to the mixture.
5.Mix until the dough comes together
6.Pour the dough ball onto your light floured workstation, compress it into a ball and begin rolling out your dough
7.If you find the dough to be sticky, use two pieces of parchment paper and roll it out that way until you get a thickness of ⅓ inch
8.Use graduated sizes of cookie cutters and cut out all the shapes required. If cutting out standard cookies about 3 inch in diameter, I would get about 36 cookies or so.
9.Bake in the oven for 16-18 minutes. For the purpose of making Christmas trees, do not let the edges brown.
10.Allow the cookies to completely cool, I let it sit for 2 hours, and then lightly dust with two tablespoons of confectioner's sugar.
