Went through some past photos and this is what I have found:

Green Tea Sable Cookies

Yummy Green Tea Cookies that even my boys love them. 🙂

As promised 2 weeks ago, I had mentioned that I will share the yummilicious green tea cookies recipe that we had made for Teacher’s Day 2012. Well here it is now and as usual I had gotten this recipe from my favourite bake book- “Okashi- Sweet Treats Made With Love” by Keiko Ishida  as mentioned in this post and here as well. I followed everything to the T except that I had insufficient green tea powder but the result of it still turn out quite well though.

Here we go:

Ingredients Needed:

  • 240g Pastry Flour or Top Flour, chilled (I used Top Flour, Sieved and put aside)
  • 10g of Green Tea Powder (the original recipe calls for 15g)
  • 150g Unsalted Butter (room temperature, cubed)
  • 130g Icing Sugar
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • A pinch of Salt
  • Granulated Sugar (as needed)
  • Egg White (Beaten)
  • Green Tea Leaves (Optional for Garnish)

Method (With Step-By-Step Photos)

  1. Cream butter till creamy and pale to incorporate air.
  2. Whisk in sugar and salt till light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in egg yolks 1 at a time.
  4. Sift in flour and green tea powder.
  5. Fold in the flour and green tea powder quickly till  well-combined.
  6. Place the dough on a clean cling wrap.
  7. Wrap and chill for about 15min.
  8. Divide the chilled dough into half and shape it into a 3.5cm log, wrap it in cling
    wrap and chill till firm. Repeat with the other half.
  9. Pre-heat oven to 170°c. Cut the firm dough into 7-mm thick pieces.
  10. Dip the edges in granulated sugar.
  11. Place cookies on baking tray lined with baking paper and
    brush a little egg white over it.
  12. Garnish with Green tea leaves (Optional).
  13. Bake for 25mins in preheated oven.
  14. Place on cooling wrack and leave to cool.

**Things to Note:

  1. If the dough is not going to be used immediately, wrap with cling wrap, store it in n air-tight container or ziplock bag. Cookie dough can be kept for up to 2 months in the freezer.
  2. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room at room temperature for up to 10 days.
