Dessert • Sweet
This is a newer tradition for our family. It combines my love of (matcha) tea, my kids’ love of sweet snacks, and fun, festive colours.
Mix butter, sugar and vanilla extract together for a few minutes until light and fluffy.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, matcha powder and salt. Gradually add this mixture to the butter mixture.
Gather and press the dough into a flattened disk and chill until firm, about 2 hours.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 325°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Roll out dough to a ¼-inch thickness on a floured surface and cut circles with a 2-inch round cutter. Place cookies on the prepared baking sheet.
