  • 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 ½ tablespoons matcha green tea powder
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate chopped coarsely
  • ½ tablespoons coconut oil solid, room temperature


  • In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter, granulated sugarpowdered sugar, and salt until thoroughly combined, about 3 minutes. In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose and cake flours with the Matcha powder.
  • With the mixer on low, mix the flour mixture into the butter mixture in 3 additions, scraping down the sides of the bowl in between each addition.
  • Place shortbread dough between two pieces of parchment paper, flatting with your hands into a rectangle.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough over top of the top layer of parchment paper until the dough is ¼ -inch-thick.
  • Place on a baking tray and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF (177ºC).
  • Cut the refrigerated dough into 2-inch circles using a cookie cutter or rim of a glass.
  • Place cut-out cookies on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake the cookies until just golden at the edges, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool on sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once cookies have cooled, melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler or in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl for 2 minutes on 50% power, stirring halfway through.
  • Dip the cookies, allowing the excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl or use the tines of a fork to drizzle the chocolate over top of the cookies.
