Matcha Shortbread Cookies
2 cups of flour (use coconut flour for a gluten-free cookie)
1-2 tbsp organic matcha powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 lb unsalted grass-fed butter
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
Sift together flour, matcha, and salt in a medium bowl.
In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Slowly add flour and matcha mixture to butter and sugar, until just combined. Do not over-mix!
Gently roll out the dough on a floured surface.
If you are using cookie cutters, refrigerate dough for one hour so that it is less fragile.
Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and bake cookies at 325F for approximately 10 minutes, depending on the size and thickness of the cookies.
Keep a close watch on them so that they don’t brown!
