I don’t know about you but man do I love everything tea-infused! For our readers who are short of time but craving something sweet, this is your lucky day! Co-founder Winnie has generously shared her secret recipe of making “Matcha x Jasmine Cookies”.

 

 

Ingredients:

Mixture A

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon of fine salt
  • 2 tablespoons of matcha powder

 

Mixture B

  • 226g of unsalted butter (approx. 1 cup of butter)
  • ½ cup of icing sugar (confectioners sugar/powdered sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons of Jasmine Tea infused butter
  • ¼ teaspoon of vanilla essence

 

Steps:

  • In a bowl, mix flour, matcha powder and fine salt until the matcha powder and fine salt is spread throughout the flour.
  • In a small saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter under low heat and add Jasmine tea leaves.
  • Then, continue heating the mixture of butter and jasmine tea leaves at low heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove the saucepan and allow the mixture to rest for another 10 minutes.
  • Strain the mixture through a sieve to separate the tea leaves and butter.
  • In another bowl, cream butter, sugar, Jasmine Tea infused butter and vanilla essence.
  • Add in Mixture A into Mixture B, continue to mix until a soft dough is formed.
  • Place the dough on a piece of plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 30-40 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Cut out cookies and bake them on baking sheet for approximately 8-10 minutes until edges turn golden.

Note: For stronger jasmine flavour, infuse the butter and tea leaves 1 day before baking.

 

Verdict:

It is simple to make and super tasty. Instagram-worthy don’t you think?
