Easy 5-Step Matcha Cookies Recipe
For the Cookies
- 1 tbsp. Sugimoto Organic Daily Matcha or Ceremonial Matcha
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 3 large egg yolks
- 1/4 cup sea salt
For the Filling
- 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 8 oz heavy whipping cream
Step 1: Combine the dry ingredients
In a small bowl, whisk the powdered sugar and Matcha together until combined.
Step 2: Mix the dry and wet ingredients
Using an electric beater or stand mixer, beat the butter, sugar, and matcha mixture together until the butter is smooth and light in color. Add flour and stir until just combined.
Drop in the egg yolks and mix until they are incorporated and the dough comes together. Gather dough into a ball and flatten into a thick disc.
Wrap dough in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until firm.
Step 3: Cut the cookies into shapes
Preheat oven to 350°F. On a floured surface, roll out dough to about 1/4-inch thickness.
Use a small cookie cutter to cut shapes from the dough. Place cut shapes on a parchment-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt.
Step 4: Bake the cookies
Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes or until they begin to turn golden at the edges. Remove from oven and cool on a cooling rack.
Step 5: Prepare the filling
Place chocolate in a metal or glass heat-proof bowl.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the cream to a near boil.
Pour hot cream over the chocolate and stir until all the chocolate is melted. Allow the chocolate mixture to cool and whip with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
Use a small spatula to spread about two teaspoons of chocolate filling onto the cookie. Create a sandwich by putting a cookie on top of it.
