Matcha soft cookies 抹茶松软曲奇(中英食谱教程)

This recipe is adpated and modified from the famous Granny Boyd's chocolate cookies by Nigella Lawson. It's simple to make using just four ingredients. The texture of this cookie is a firm top but not hard and will slightly melt in your mouth. It's so deliciously good and even more fragrant with the use of homemade vanilla sugar! 

这食谱是改自著名女厨师Nigella Lawson 的Granny Boyd 巧克力曲奇。单单只用四种食材就能简易地做出这款好吃的松软曲奇了!我还用了自制的香草糖,味道更加美味!

Matcha Soft Cookies 
(recipe adapted and modified from simplyhdesigns,  中文食谱由Baking Taitai翻译)

Ingredients: (makes about 20 cookies)
150g self-raising flour
15g pure matcha powder
125g unsalted butter (room temperature)
65g caster sugar (I used homemade vanilla sugar, click 'here' for recipe)


150克 自发面粉
15克 纯抹茶粉
125克 无盐奶油(室温)
65克 细砂糖(我用自制香草糖,点击“这里”看食谱)

Method 方法:

1. Sieve the flour and matcha powder together, mix well and set aside.

2. Cream the butter and sugar till light and fluffy. 

3. Fold in the flour mixture and mix till it form a dough.

4. Divide the dough equally into walnut-sized balls (each ball about 17~18 grams), roll it round and arrange it on the baking tray laid with non-stick baking paper or mat. Flatten these balls with the back of the fork.

5. Bake in a preheated oven at 170 degrees Celcius for 5 minutes, then turn the temperature down to 150 degrees Celcius and bake for a further 10~15 minutes.
5。放入预热烤箱以170摄氏度先烤5分钟,再把烤箱温度降低到150摄氏度继续烤10~ 15分钟。 

6. Remove from the oven and transfer to cool on a wiring rack before storing in an air-tight container.

Thanks for dropping by. See you again! 

 The cooking temperature as suggested in all my recipes serve as a guideline. Every oven has different thermostat, you may have to adjust the temperature and timing to suit your oven. Different brand of ingredients have different composites, thus there may be a slight difference in the end result.  食谱里的烘烤温度和时间只是供参考,每一架烤炉的恒温器都不同,请自己调适。不同品牌的材料有不同的复合材料,所以最终成品有可能稍有不同。
