Ingredients

Honey green tea sandwich cookies (Adapted from Bijouxs)
Makes about 15 sandwiches

Cookies

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, plus 2 tablespoons
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoons white distilled vinegar
  • 2 1/3 cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons Herbal Tea Direct matcha powder

Frosting

  • ¼ cup butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup cream cheese, room temperature
  • ¼ cup honey
    1. Whip the butter and sugar together in the bowl of an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
    2. Add the egg and mix until combined.
    3. Dissolve the baking side in the vinegar, and add it to the butter mixture. Mix until combined.
    4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and matcha powder.
    5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the batter, mixing until a crumbly dough forms.
    6. Use your hands to form the dough into a ball. Wrap it in plastic wrap and flatten to form a disk. Chill for 30 minutes.
    7. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180º
    8. Once the dough has chilled, roll out half of it on a floured surface to a ¼-inch thickness. Keep the other half wrapped to keep it from drying out. Use a cookie cutter to cut your favorite shapes and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet., leaving about ½-inch between cookies. Repeat with remaining dough.
    9. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until just beginning to turn golden brown. Let cool before frosting.
    10. While the cookies cool, combine the butter, cream cheese, and honey in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until well mixed.
    11. Spread just under a tablespoon of frosting between two cookies and serve with a cup of warm tea!
