A recipe for matcha lovers alike.
1¾ cup unbleached flour
½ tsp vanilla extract
6 oz room temp, unsalted butter
¾ cup powdered sugar
3 egg yolks, room temp
Black sesame seeds, to decorate
Mix powdered sugar, matcha, and butter together until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolks and vanilla.
With the mixer on low, add the flour slowly until just combined. Gather the dough into a ball and flatten it into a disk. Wrap the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until firm.
Preheat the oven to 345°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll the dough to 3/8 to 1/2-inch thickness and cut shapes with a cookie cutter. Place cut out dough onto prepared baking sheet, at least an inch apart. Gently press sesame seeds onto the dough.
Bake 10-14 minutes, or until the bottom and edges are slightly golden. Cool completely on wiring rack and enjoy.
