Let's Make Miffy Vanilla Matcha Cookies!

Ingredients

For the Cookies

  • ½ Cup Unsalted Butter (Softened & Cubed)
  • 1 Cup Icing Sugar (Sifted)
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Egg (Whisked)
  • 1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Cups Cake Flour (Sifted)
  • ¾ Cups Almond Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch

For the Filling

  • 3 Tablespoon Cream Cheese
  • 2 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter (Softened & Cubed)
  • 4 Tablespoon Icing Sugar
  • ½ Teaspoon Tsujiri Matcha Powder 

Optional (For the Face Features) 

  • Cup Melted Dark Chocolate

Instructions

To Make the Cookies

  1. In a bowl, whisk unsalted butter until smooth and no chunks remain.
  2. Add salt and icing sugar to the butter mixture. Whisk together until well combined.
  3. Add whisked egg in 3 parts. Once the egg is well incorporated, add in vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
  4. Sift in cake flour, almond flour, and cornstarch. Using a baking spatula, gently fold in ingredients until just combined. Do not overmix. 
  5. Using a rolling pin, roll out the cookie dough onto a sheet of parchment paper. For this recipe, the dough is roughly 33mm thick.
  6. Cover the cookie dough with another sheet of parchment paper and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. The colder the dough is, the easier it will be to cut out. 
  7. Once dough is chilled, cut out bunny shapes with cookie cutters. Do not transfer to the baking sheet just yet. Cover rolled out dough with parchment paper and let it refrigerate for at least 15 minutes. This will make it easier to transfer the cookies onto the baking sheet.
  8. While the cookies are chilling, preheat the oven to 325ºF (163ºC). Bake for 9-10 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. 
  9. Let the cookies cool completely before adding filling and finishing touches.

To Make the Filling

  1. In a bowl, combine cream cheese and cubed butter. Mix until well combined. 
  2. Add in icing sugar and mix until well combined.
  3. Sift in Tsujiri Premium Matcha Green Tea Latte Mix and mix until well combined.
  4. Transfer filling to piping bag.

Assembly

  1. On the back of one Miffy cookie, pipe the desired amount of filling.
  2. Gently sandwich matcha filling with another Miffy cookie.
  3. Using melted dark chocolate, add in Miffy's eyes and mouth to the top part of the cookie sandwich. Let chocolate cool completely.
  4. Serve & enjoy!
