Today I feel like making a random list of my favorite things that start with the letter G. Please feel free to add to my list!
Gateaux (french for cake!)
Giant Cookies (okay this one doesn't really count, but still)
Girly Stuff (now and then)
Green Tea Cookies, speaking of which, is what we see below! :)
I found this recipe online which is a recipe that won an award or something. I'm sure lots of ppl have encountered the recipe before. But anyways, I was really excited about it cuz I bought some really nice (and expensive!!) organic matcha powder (Japanese green tea powder). It's a beautiful bright green and it was so much fun to work with. This green tea/ avocado green colour is my most favorit-est colour in the whole wide world. I have lots and lots of things that are this colour, including one of my bedroom walls! It's funny when I look around my house and see how many green things I have. Anyways. It's an easy recipe and they taste great. It's not too sweet and it has a nice note of green tea. Great for the adults. :)
Green Tea Cookies
makes about 2 dozen
recipe from Lovescool
3/4 cup (2.25 oz) Confectioners sugar
5 oz unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1 3/4 cup (8.5 oz) all-purpose flour
3 large egg yolks
1 1/2 tbsp Matcha (powdered green tea)
1 cup Granulated sugar (for coating)
1. Whisk the confectioner’s sugar and green tea together in a bowl.
2. Add the butter and green tea/sugar mixture to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix until smooth and light in color. Add the flour and mix until well combined. Add the egg yolks and mix just until the eggs are fully incorporated and a mass forms.
3. Form the dough into a disk and chill in the refrigerator until firm (about 30 minutes).
4. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
5. Roll the dough out to ½” thickness. Cut the dough with a cookie cutter. Toss each cut cookie in a bowl of granulated sugar to coat.
6. Place the sugar-coated cookie on a parchment lined pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until slightly golden around the edges.
