Notes

These cookies are finished by hand while still hot, so don't bake them all at once. Also, be careful not to burn yourself!

Ingredients

  • 1/3 Cup granulated sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/3 Cup cake or all-purpose flour
  • 2½ Tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons cooking grade matcha, such as Aiya

Directions

Using thick paper, cut out a 2- to 2½-inch circle. Also prepare about 20 fortunes to place inside the cookies. Preheat the oven to between 330 and 340 degrees F.

Add the sugar and egg whites to a bowl and beat together with an electric mixer until they turn white. Add in the butter in little by little, constantly mixing.

Sift the flour and matcha together, and then add to the egg whites.

Spoon the dough onto flat surface and spread it into a circle. Use the paper circle as a guide for size and shape, and cut out about 20 circles. Place the dough rounds onto a baking sheet.

Place the cookie in the oven and bake until the edges of the cookie just start to change color, about 3 minutes.

While the cookie is still hot, place a fortune in the center of the cookie and shape the cookie around the fortune. Make sure to leave space in the middle and not to press the cookie against itself. Let cool.

Cookie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cookie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.

Cookie Wine Pairing

Milk is more traditional with cookies than wine in the U.S., but a few cookies and a glass of sweet wine make a simple, enjoyable dessert. Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based cookies; sauternes or sweet German wines with sugar cookies; cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts; Italian vin santo with biscotti.
