  • 7 tbsp unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 6 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 egg yolk at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 6 tbsp almond meal
  • 3 tsp matcha green tea
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds

  • Beat together the butter and powdered sugar, until lightened in color, and fluffy in the bowl of your mixer. Add the egg yolk, and mix until combined.
  • Sift together the flour, salt and matcha into a medium mixing bowl, breaking up any clumps by pressing through the sieve if necessary. Whisk in the almond meal to combine.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the mixer bowl and mix thoroughly until combined.
  • Using a spatula, scoop the dough onto a piece of plastic wrap, and form into a 2 inch diameter log. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap, and freeze for 40 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350° F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or Silpat (silicone baking sheet).
  • Unwrap the cookie dough log, and roll it in the crushed almonds, pressing down to ensure that the almonds sticks to the surface.
