These crispy buttery cookies are flavoured with aromatic green tea leaves. They are very good for dipping into tea or just munching plain. I hope youll enjoy this twist on traditional cut-out cookies.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 185 g flour
  • 30 g walnuts, chopped (I used a mix of walnuts and hazelnuts)
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 100 g sugar
  • 3 teaspoons green tea leaves, chopped finely (use a good quality tea with flowery taste for this)
  • 60 g butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten


  1. First combine all of the dry ingredients in a big bowl. Then add all of the wet ingredients at once and knead everything into a smooth dough.
  2. On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough to desired thickness. I left my cookies rather chunky as I dont like them too crisp.
  3. Cut out cookies of desired shape (I made hearts) and place them on a paper-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the pre-heated oven at 180°C/350°F for about 15 minutes or until cookies are slightly browned around the edges. Note: Depending on the thickness of your cookies this will vary. Start checking thin cookies at 8 minutes.
