[YummyBakes] Light Matcha Cranberry Cookies

Here's another CNY cookies that I made this year. Simple, healthy and yummy cookies. Those who love green tea will definitely love it. I found this recipe in Nasi Lemak Lover blog while I was browsing for easy to make CNY cookies.

Thankfully, there are few shapes of cookie cutter at home. I used flower and heart shape. The green tea was quite light but it was alright. Next time, I am going to increase it to 1 tbsp instead of 1 and a half tsp of green tea powder. I also thinks that the colour and taste of the green tea also depends on the type of green tea powder you are using.

Makes 2 small canisters


80g Butter
50g icing sugar
1 egg yolk (medium size)
120g corn flour
20g all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp green tea powder (preferable 1 tbsp)
45g dried cranberries, chopped


1. Cream butter and sugar till light, creamy and pale in colour.
2. Add in egg yolk and mix well.
3. Add in flour and green tea powder through a sifter by batches. Combine well.
4. Add in dried cranberries and mix well.
5. Shape the cookies and line in baking tray. I found that it was quite hard for me to shape the cookies as the batter was too soft. I added flour after that but I think the batter can be kept in refrigerator for 15minutes to let it set.
6. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for 20minutes or till it turns a big golden brown.
