Matcha Shortbread Cookies by Sarah Xiong

Very matcha-y, crispy cookies with just the right amount of sweetness. Work lightly so you don't overwork the dough.


  • 4 oz butter
  • 1 oz (1/4 cup) powdered sugar
  • 1.75 oz (1/4 c) superfine sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/16 tsp salt
  • 5 oz ap bleached flour
  • 1 tbsp matcha powder
about 18 cookies


Cream sugars and butter. Add vanilla, matcha and salt and mix. Add flour. Mix til just blended. Roll into a log (9") and dust liberally in flour on cling wrap. Rest for 1 hour, maximum 3 days.

Slice into 1/4" pieces. Bake 400 for 3 minutes then lower to 350 for 9 minutes. Rotate halfway through. Do not overcook, do not let brown excessively.
