Green Tea Melting Moments

I have been wanting to make this cookie ever since I saw how easy the recipe was early this year. However, I was just not motivated enough to really make it. What did it for me was the picture of Connie's melting moments at KC. She reminded me of this melt-in-the-mouth cookie again and thus the result of this afternoon labor. Sometimes all it took was a picture to snap me into action. Okay, now who wants to help me finish all the cookies? ;o)

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup cornstarch
1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. green tea powder
A dash of salt


In a large bowl, beat (A) until fluffy. Add (B), beating well until when pressed with fingers, it sticked together. Fold into a disk and covered it with a plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 325'F. Rolled out the dough and used a few cookie cutters to cut out different shapes (Need to work quickly as the dough turned soft fast with warm hands). Place on a parchment paper on a cookie sheet and baked for 12-15 minutes, or until adges were golden. Remove to cool on wire rack.

Yields 2-3 dozen

Verdict: Melt-in-your-mouth with a hint of green tea flavor.

For this, shaped the dough like a finger or long shape. Baked for 15 minutes. When the cookie was still warm, dipped and coated it with powdered sugar.

Hi Hi,

I am new to your blog. Hope you are able to help me to understand what do you mean by beat butter and powder sugar until fluffy? Is it the same as beat butter and powder sugar till creamy and pale?

Thank you.

Hi Jac,
Welcome to my blog. Yes, beat until creamy and pale is correct.
