American soft cookie (Flavour: matcha)
List of Ingredients (Bakes approximately 10 cookies)
・ 100g - Unsalted butter
・ 50g - Granulated sugar
・100g - Johakuto sugar (Can be substituted with brown sugar)
・ 1ea/60g - Whole egg

① Roughly cut the almonds and white chocolate, set aside.
② Sift the cake flour, matcha and baking powder together.
③ Once the butter is at room temperature, mix it with the sugar until you get a white paste.
④ Add the egg into ③ and mix well.
⑤ Now add in the powder sifted in ② and the cut almonds/white chocolate from ① to ④. Mix well.
⑥ Separate the mixture into small circular disks on your baking pan. Each disk should weigh approximately 50g each. Please ensure to arrange the mixture evenly, with a sufficient amount of distance between each another.
⑦ Gently place the almonds and white chocolate into each disk. At d:matcha we usually top each cookie with three pieces of almond and white chocolate.
⑧ Bake at 165 degrees for 15 minutes. Ideally the oven should have been preheated to 180 degrees.
