Sooooooo… aren’t these adorable!??! I fell in love with these Miffy cookie cutter cookies the moment I saw them. Thanks to my friend Amie from HK who recommended the cookie cutter to me, so B and I could order it online :). They came JUST in time for when I had some friends coming over, and they loved the cookie itself and the cutter too!! ^.^
Green Tea Cookies
Stuff I used
3/4 cup (2.25 oz) Confectioners (powdered) sugar
1 1/4 stick of unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 large egg yolks
1 1/2 tbsp Matcha (powdered green tea)
1 cup Granulated (white) sugar (for coating)
Putting it all together
First whisk the confectioner’s sugar and green tea together in a bowl. Then add the butter and green tea/sugar mixture into a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (If you don’t have a standing mixer, you can simply use a hand held mixer!) Mix until everything is smooth and creamy. Add the flour after that and mix until well combined.
Next, add the egg yolks one at a time and make sure everything is well mixed. Form the dough into a disk and chill with saran wrap in the fridge for about 30min to 1 hour until it firms up (this makes it easier to roll out afterwards).
While the dough is in the fridge, preheat the oven to 350F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or use a silpat baking mat.
On a clean surface, sprinkle just a touch of flour enough so that your dough doesn’t stick. Roll the dough out into 1/2 inch thickness and you can go crazy with your favourite cookie cutter! After I cut the cookies out, I tossed some in the white sugar to coat. I thought it would be TOO sweet by doing this, but the cookies actually tasted better with the coating (not too sweet), and it looked more interesting too! (so I say coat them all!)
Place your cookies onto the cook sheet and bake for 5-8mins until they brown on the edges. (my cookies were really tiny so depending on the cookie size/oven you may need to bake them a little longer!)
