what you'll need

let's do it

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in egg yolks and vanilla until combined.
  • Sift baking powder, salt, matcha powder and flour into separate bowl.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients then mix until smooth dough forms. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Roll out dough to ¼" thickness on lightly floured surface then cut out dough using tree shape cookie cutter.
  • Arrange on baking sheet 2" apart and bake 10-15 minutes until edges start to brown. Place cookies on cooling rack.
  • Once cooled, pipe small dots of royal icing onto cooled cookies and "glue" dragees in place.

One Last Thing

Why add food coloring? You can get green color naturally with matcha tea.
