Matcha Chess Shortbread Cookies (Serves 40-50 cookies)

  • 6 scoops of PANATEA Ceremonial or Culinary matcha
  • 1 1/4 stick of unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup of powdered sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  1. Beat softened butter until light and fluffy. Cream together powdered sugar, yolks and vanilla. Mix flour and salt to the butter mixture until a lumpy dough starts to form. Using your hands, press the lumps and knead until dough is smooth.
  2. Separate dough into 2 balls. Knead matcha into one ball until it is uniformly green. Separate each ball in half again.
  3. For each ball, roll/pat into a long cylinder about 12" and then pat to make 4 sides (like a long square). Arrange them on top of each other to make a chessboard and pat lightly together.
  4. Wrap firmly in seran wrap and pat lightly on a flat surface to make the dough log more square.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  6. Preheat oven to 360F. With a sharp knife, cut out 1/4" cookies and lay on a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Bake for 9-12mins or until slightly browning on the edges.
  8. Let cool for at least 5 minutes.
