Bonus: Tannenbäumchen Christmas Cookies

Don't worry. I promise I won't become a food blogger :) But this recipe went so nicely with the Tannenbäumchen Potholders that I couldn't resist. So here - for the first time - is a recipe for christmas cookies.
These cookies are not too sweet and they have the fine Matcha taste, that I love. Furthermore, the green color makes them look like christmas trees (or Tannenbäumchen in german :).
Depending on the type of margarine and the white chocolate you use, the cookies can even be vegan.

  • 200 grams of flour
  • 10 grams of Matcha powder
  • 70 grams of confectioners' sugar
  • 130 grams of margarine
  • 2 table spoons of cold green tea
  • white chocolate coating (couverture) - plain white chocolate will do as well
The knitting pattern for the potholder is available here

  • Mix the dry ingredients (flour, Matcha powder & icing sugar together).
  • Add margarine and tea. Knead until it forms a smooth dough.
  • Form into a ball, wrap with clingfilm and let it rest in the fridge for at least one hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • On a floured surface (or between two sheets of baking paper), roll the dough out to about 5mm thickness. 
  • Cut cookies with tree shaped cookie cutter - or cut your dough into triangles with an acute angle. 
  • Bake about 12 to 14 minutes - but keep an eye on them since they burn easily.
  • When the cookies are cooled, melt the chocolate coating and decorate the your cookies and wait till the chocolate sets.
    As you can see on all photos, my piping skills are non-existent - however, I melted the chocolate in a freezer bag and cut a small hole into one of the corners and decorated with this makeshift piping bag. So, the use of a real piping bag might have helped ...
