Hojicha cookie

Posted on October 07, 2014 | 0 comments
Sunday morning, I made one of my favorite cookies - Hojicha cookies. Mellow roasted nut flavour of Hojicha(roasted Japanese green tea) goes well with cookies amazingly! They are very nice with a hot cup of tea(English breakfast, Assam, Ceylon, Earl Grey, Strawberry cream black). Strongly recommend this recipes if you like some special flavour of cookie.

Ingredients: 180g(3/4 cup) butter, 100g sugar, 2 egg yolks, 300g(2 cup) all purpose flour, 4 teaspoon Houjicha, pinch of salt,
Cut Hojicha into very small pieces and mix with flour, sugar, and salt.
Blend the butter until smooth and add the egg yolk and mix well.
Add the flour and Hojicha and stir with a rubber spatula.
Form the batter into a log shape so you can slice and bake the cookies on demand
Let it cool in the refrigerator for 1 hour.(you can skip this if you don't have time.)
Put the batter on waxed paper and chill overnight in the freezer.(Option to skip)
Cut and bake on a cookie sheet in the preheated oven at 180C(356F) for 10-15 minutes
Remove cookies from cookie sheet and let it cool.
Accompanying teas: Earl Grey blue, Strawberry cream, Assam Numalighur, Ceylon Ratnapura, O'sullivan's favourite
