It was a few days ago when I visited a good friend and we have baked together quite a lot of cookies (and incidentally drunk some delicious punch which inspired us to bake some cookies with matcha)! : D among other things, we baked these delicious Matcha biscuits made of shortcrust pastry dough.
The preparation went relatively fast and you do not even need a food processor or the like. Try it out! 🙂
Ingredients for 2 plates:
50g ground almonds
Step1: in a small bowl, mix the sugar with the Matcha. This prevents the Matcha from becoming clumsy later.
Step2: In a large bowl mix flour, almonds, sugar mixture and Butter. With a knife cut the Butter into coarse pieces and then knead the whole thing by hand until a smooth dough is formed. The to ever 10 – 15 minutes.
Step3: cut the dough in half and Form 2 rolls. These are then wrapped in transparent film and may rest for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator or 10 minutes in the freezer. This is used to cut the dough better later.
Step4: now cut the rolls into 1cm thick slices, bake on a baking sheet and the whole at 170°C 12 to 13 minutes. You should be careful not to Brown them.
Step5: after baking, allow the biscuits to cool down briefly. Roll into sugar while still warm and allow to cool completely. We used cane sugar. Enjoy! 😀
The biscuits are perfect with a Cup of hot ginger-honey-and-milk or a delicious tea! 3 don’t you look great? Instead of having a bite, you can also use any other neutral biscuit as a base for Matcha biscuits, because you just have to try! 🙂
I think I’ll let me have a Matcha cookie now! delicious! 😀
