Green Tea Shamrock Cookies for St. Patrick's Day

I can't wait for you to make this recipe!

These cookies are so tasty! The green tea flavor blends perfectly with the basic sugar cookie recipe. I especially like that these are not overly sweet cookies and have a nice bit of crunch to them.

In a large bowl, mix the butter with sugar until light and fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. Whisk together flour, matcha green tea powder, baking powder and salt. Gradually stir into the butter mixture until dough comes together.

Step 1

Divide the dough in half, form into discs and wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Let stand at room temperature until soft enough to roll out, about 15 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 350 °F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.

Step 3

Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll to 1/4 inch thick. Use shamrock shaped cookie cutter to make cookie shapes, re-rolling any scraps. Repeat process with the remaining dough.

Step 4

Place cookies onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are light brown. Let cookies cool for a minute on baking sheets then transfer to racks and let them cool completely.
